Finally I got the stove hooked up and running in our old victorian house and finally got some pics...
I tied into the furnance as shown by the insulated pipe and it is maintaining a min. temp in the living room.
I have done everything I can to get the heat out, but loosing too much into the basement, going to put a bigger blower inline on it and see if it work better.
I put in digital temp probes into the plenum and exhaust.

The sides of the stove are 450-500 at full throttle.
(TOP) Exhaust is a bit high at 200+, I think I need a baro damper, I can open the ash door and the temp drops significantly....
(BOTTOM) The heat coming out to the living is around 130-140.
Also, the basement was a cool 48-52 Degrees and now in/around the stove is 60-62....just need to fill all the cracks and keep the cold air out! Gotta luv old houses.
Still tweeking, but running and keeping the chill off and the other furnance has not come on.
It's been really cold 5-10 at night. !!
I do have sheet metal heat shield above the exhaust pipe , since there is a beam there and the clearance is tight and around the post behind it
So far, so good. At least until I get a bigger unit (soon!).
(The larger pipe is the cold air return for the other furnance. It has no blower, just convection)
