I have my AHS 130 Coal Gun install like this using 5 inch stovepipe and a 6 inch type RC baro. I had to add additional weight to get the baro flapper to stay open as suggested. Using this setup I've not had the baro door blow off in a "puff back" situation. If fact a vigorous buff back will clean your stove pipe. Just blows everything into my chimney's clay liner. A design feature.

Looking at the rectangular steel asher mount, it has 2 bolts that hold it down. I'm going to say it is 26GT191 Ratchet Pawl Guide and it goes under the right hand bolt. It sticks out like a finger and turns toward the coal tubes feed end. Confirmation?
