hydro testing

I just installed a super heater on my likamobile. The super heater is after the throttle. My question how do I hydro the system since the output of the super heater goes to the engine and there is no shut off valves it that part of the plumbing. The boiler is a derr with the super heater under the tube nest. This is the setup that Rolly showed me that was on one of his boilers. Installing a shut off just before the engine is not going to be easy, but if it is required then so be it.

The supperheater should have been tested separately, or you could have plugged the pipe before you connected it to the engine and tested the completed system including the throttle.

That's what I ended up doing, I installed a shut off valve just before the engine. Then hydro the complete system.
