For the easy question, no I didn't get the water coil with it.
I can't answer your other question exactly since I am not using my propane furnace's blower at all. What I did is just duct the koker's heat (using round ductwork off of round holes keystoker cut into the top of the heat jacket for me) into my existing trunk lines that carried the furnace's warm air. In order to do this, I strategically placed dampers in my trunk lines to keep the coal heated air from back flowing through my cold air returns. Then I ran two separate cold air returns from my existing return trunk lines to the koker's convection blower (one to each side of it). So, I am using the factory supplied Dayton blower to distribute all my coal heated air. The blower is rated at 1,500 cfm (similar to a gas forced air furnace), but I don't think I am getting quite the air pressure as with the propane furnace, but I am satisfied with its performance. One thing I may change over the summer is put a plenum over the koker and run rectangular ducts to my trunk lines. This may give me more "oomph" in air flow, I am currently using one 10" and two 8" ducts running from the koker to my existing ducts. FYI, I am not a plumber/HVAC guy so I just kind of put this together off the top of my head with hopes that it would work, which it did for the most part.
The schematic below pretty much shows what I did. It is NOT drawn to scale!!!

I see you are running a Koker. I'm looking at moving this way too. I've got a couple questions that I'm hoping you might answer for me. Are you ducting your Koker into your hot air furnace's cold air return duct? If you are, that's the setup I'm going with. How well does this work for you? Do you use the hot air furnace to circulate the hot air coming off your Koker? Just wondering how this hot air gets distributed through out the house since the Koker is on its own thermastat.
Do you use the Hot water coil option in your Koker too?
