What is its year of manufacture? There may or may not be a need to fiddle with its electronics based on when it was made.

Thanks lsayre,
I found the serial number, I will have to get more info about manufacture date but I think is newer rather than older. just wanted to say thanks . I am still hoping to get an answer about the best place for the baro, close to the thimble verses the breach. Thanks again and Happy New Year

The baro should be at the thimble. Use a 6" baro as described in the AA installation manual for windy sites. Search my old posts, I think I have photos of my installation.

Rob, Yanchy, & McGiever thanks for the advice and the picture .
As I already have the baro, T, thimble, elbows and the stove pipe, all are 6 inch. I have an increaser from 5 inch breach to 6" stove pipe. So I was wondering I could go from 5" to 6"at the breach to the thimble with 6 " stove pipe into a 6" to 5" reducer and a short piece of 5" into the baro T. I hope that will work if not ill need to buy all 5" stove pipe?? I know need 3 screws at each joint should I also use high temperature silicone to seal the joints?? Thanks again and HAPPY NEW YEAR btw can I put two or more quotes in a single post ? THANKS

The second to last post in this thread has a pic of the pipe inside a pipe being described...

5" up to 6" flu pipe

The baro goes into the opening you are looking through.

maybe I should sell it and give up as no one seems to know where I can buy coal and if I ever learn how to install it I take pics so I can look at it when I get cold and again Happy New Year

[quote="FirstcoalstokerRon"]Rob & McGiever thanks for the advice and the picture . THANKS !!! I already have the baro, T, thimble, elbows and the stove pipe, all are 6 inch. I have an increaser from 5 inch breach to 6 inch stove pipe. So I was thinking I could go from 5 inch breach to a 6 inch elbow to a section of stove pipe to a another elbow to a 6 to 5 reducer and a short piece of 5 inch into the baro T 1/2 way. Would that be about the same as the picture? if not I have to buy all 5 inch . I know 3 screws need to go into each joint but do I need high temperature silicone to seal the joints?? As I said I have learned a lot just from reading in here but I do have a lot to learn. Without u guys and girls I would be so lost. Thanks again

I went from 5" to 6" immediately at the boiler 6 years ago, and I haven't had any issues.

OK I will do it that way and ill let you know how it turns out thanks again.

Next question, I want to use my electric boiler as a back up can I run the water through the COAL GUN all the time or must I bypass it and use valves??

You can plumb them in series, just be sure to have the anti-scald mixing valve installed on the hot water heater "out" line to mix the cold water with it at the desired temperature.

The only major issue would be when the hot water heater fails as you will not have a work around unless you install piping to bypass it BEFORE the mixing valve and before the first faucet to assure no one gets scalded.
