Hopefully you are 4 lines to the right of zero and your hose is on the low side port.
Its OK, we don't need no stinkin numbers!
You are right about where you should be given the naturE of your stove. The only thing you might play with a little more is the cover on the combustion fan VS the rheostat on the DV to make sure you are not compensating for one or the other being mis-adjusted. Start with the cover 2/3 over the opening and then adjust the rheostat to achieve the .03 to .04 (yeah I know there are no numbers
), then go back and tweek that cover just a bit open, if the draft moves drastically then you need to increase the rheostat a little and start over. You want to make sure you are bleeding just a little air through the port on the DV so you a can also check with a match or cigarette to see if that is sucking too much or not enough room air in. It's all a balancing act. Europachris probably has some tips as well.
have fun and keep us posted as you measure the draft without numbers.
