Secondly, I'm not 100% sure i'm going to brick it all the way up. i'm not the best with masonry stuff. GIve me wood and a few table saws and routers i'm good to go. masonry, i've never played with it. I have about 6 inches of brick coming up above the last piece of clay liner. So my game plan is to set that clay liner down inside the chimney so that the piece of clay that i'm putting on buts up against the last piece in the chimney. It will only then have about 1ft 6 inches showing on top. Hopefully that will cure the problem. I will then get a straight shot from collar of boiler to the exit outside of the house and place the barometric draft on that straight shot.
I know you guys think i'm crazy, but i really think this tree line might have something to do with it. So that's going this weekend too. (it has to go anyways, it's to close to the house and i'm not into talking to insurance agents right now) it's just safer.
Is it okay to have that clay liner stick out the top of the chimney rougly a foot and a half?
