Looks like it went together pretty easily. Want some constructive criticism? Turn that cleanout lever around and run armored cable to the stoker.

It was a nice install I let the customer wire in the mechanism while I plumbed it in. May I ask the reason to turn the arm around.

Rob may have other reasons; my 2 would be that it is ergonomically better for the operator and conforms with the original design.
