Terry; Thanks for your time and effort looking for that manual and also your response. Yea, I was happy with the way the stove came out with some stove polish and some elbow grease
thanks, and your blue stove, did you paint that or is that one of the enamel ones?
As far as the hopper setting / hight, I have it set for pea I believe, set at "B1" according to the info, pdf, I found that Rewinder posted. But I came across another post about setting the hopper for nut and still use pea coal. I might try that but to me my stove seems to be working ok, although I have only been running it for a little over a week so far and it is doing a good job of keeping the house warm, 72*-74* average.
I did seal it up and did the door gasket mod and the blue flames leaned toward the right when I closed the internal dampener for the first couple of days I used it, but then the outside temps were milder those days around the mid 40's or so and now the last couple of days that the temps been 28* - 34* the blue flames only lean to the right for just a couple of minutes when I close the dampener after refilling and ash removal and then go straight up 5"-6",
One thing I noticed here though with the dampener it seems to go beyond being closed, instead of being straight up, closed, it is leaning a little forward into the firebox, so now I don't give the lever as hard of a push. Also I am wondering is there supposed to be a gasket around the top of hopper somewhere besides the griddle gasket?
I don't have no baro and have no idea what my draft is, but I've been able to go 12 hrs on a hopper load. Stove is running average about 375 to 400 measured with a regular pipe thermometer placed just off the griddle plate on the top right ( if you look hard in the photo you will see it by the red pole). At the moment stove is 375*, on the pipe just above the stove at about a foot the temp is 200*, and about 5' away it is 110*. So to me that is not too bad.... Chimney set up is a 6" pipe out of the stove 2', an elbow to the right, 6' to another elbow into a 8" clay chimney that was the gas furnace's, about 20'. So I am wondering, should the flame always be leaning?
