jpeat has his weight installed on the correct (left) side, because his baro is installed in a horizontal run of pipe.

Whatever the Postion is on the Pipe coming off of the stove that should be the Position of the weight on the baro
in wood ncoal case the Pipe coming off the stove is vertical hooked to a tee so the weight should be on the vertical side
even though it is going into his chimney horizontal . If the Pipe from the stove is on a angel or if it is on a horizontal
plain going into a tee then the weight should be on the horizontal side .

Loosen the outer ring screw and tweak the baro to the left to center it I know your pipe is to the right a little but the baro should line up with the chimney flue it is only off a little go counter clock wise a little Please it is bugging me ;)

Pipes are plumb and level, so is the baro. The camera operator is tilted :!:

I installed the gray one because there was no stylish black model available at the time.

While we are on the subject of barometric dampers, let me ask a question? Why is the Field type RC recommended by several posters on here. Like Jpete, I took the one the guy handed me, and I got a gray type M. The Type M is , (according to the Field manual which came with it, ) suitable for solid fuel and manual /hand feed stoves. In my opinion, the draft adjustment is simpler, and there's no "vertical or horizontal" to deal with. You just get it installed level and plumb, and you can move the threaded weight in or out to adjust the draft. I'm not knocking the RC, I'm just curious as to why it is recommended by the majority?

The M is recommended for coal by Field controls as it has a dual action operation unlike the R/C (it will swing in both directions, useful if you have a strong puffback as it won't split your stovepipe with an M). The R/C is cheaper and that may be one reason it is more popular, it is what I have.
