Thanks for the help. Right now it looks like I need some glass for the door and a new gasket for the door as well. My Father in Law gave me the stove and is looking for the knob on the side that controls the damper? I am in the process of cleaning everything and should have an idea soon if I need anything else. There is a store nearby (Stoves and Stuff) that should have the glass panels and gasket but I am nervous that any other parts will be hard to find. I am waiting for my Heating/Pumber to set up a day to install a power vent and the stove to the vent. My Father in law is pretty handy but I have young lads in the house and would hate to have Carbon Monoxide leaking into the home.
So I guess my concerns so far are:
Are parts readily available for Franco Belge?
Would I be better off if I can afford it buying a Reading Stove their store is only an hour away and parts should never be a problem?
I will be installing the stove in a small Ranch style home, for now I will be heating the water with oil
My father in law said I could have problems with pipes freezing if the water in the baseboards does not circulate. I think as long as the house is well above freezing in every room all we be ok.
I have more concerns/questons but I'll stop here for brevity sake.
