I'd love to see enough to be able to figure out the airflow of the exhaust gasses in both direct vent and in BaseBurner mode. Showing the back BB damper would be very helpful and a description of the airflow through the stove would be appreciated.
I looks like this has a suspended firepot, but it is not the type like a Glennwood #9 that the exhaust airflow reverses and goes down around the suspended firepot, but goes out the back, then down to the base. On your stove it appears that the outside of the firepot radiates it's heat through the lower set of doors. and does not heat any air in the stove.. it looks like Piere's [nortcan] 'Golden Bride' air flow.
This is a really nice stove.. William: did this have the kind of 'puffed out' nickle plated casting that looks sort of like a edwardian frilled collar around the top of the stove? sort of puffed out with down and outward facing concave shell shaped heat reflective surfaces?
Yes, the stove is missing the casting between the top of the main body and the top. It is an unusual piece to be missing, but; the good part is that it will not effect the functionality of the stove. The stove will operate just fine without it. Hopefully, he can find one to cast a copy from or find a junk stove that has it.
