This is great and a very important subject!!! Many new and used members, (including myself), can learn the proper way to build or have a chimney built. If you can post pic's as you progress and finish the install this thread can be saved and referenced for eternity. Thanks ShawnTRD and good luck...it look's like your dog is barking at the oil fill pipe :D

Any recommendations on the piping, damper, and manometer to use from the stove to the chimney?

Hydraulic scaffolding. :D

8" galvanized flue pipe, 8" RC barometric damper. Black stove pipe works fine also. The first 90 off the boiler should be a tee with a cap, not an elbow. Flyash will collect there and the tee/cap allows you to clean it without shutting the boiler down. The second 90 can be a tee, or an elbow. I have never found much flyash in the upper section of pipe, the first 90 gets most of it.

Thanks Rob
Didn't think about the tees. I have to go about four feet to the right from the back of the boiler to the chimney. Should I have the pipe go in angle or an extra elbow and keep everything vertical and horizontal?
