Attaching a Calorifier to a Perkins 4108

Hi all, yet again I turn to you good folk for advise, I wasn't sure weather this post should be here or in the plumbing bit but here I go. We are fitting a new pressurised system to our boat for hot showers, running water etc (oh what a treat) but I am a little unsure where to take the hot water from to feed the Calorifier, I know it needs to be fed from the heat exchanger some how but where would be the best place to return it any pictures would be great, as always I'am in your hands.

Thanks in advance

Julian

From the engine and before the heat exchanger. The hot coolant comes out of the engin then gives up some of its heat to the hot water tank and then to the salt water heat exchanger where it is cooled and returned tothe engine.

Also has the calorifier fitted at or around the same level as the header tank, I have been given conflicting of late as to weather it has or not as I'am very limited for space

Thanks Again
