Anyway you can drive something for a wedge on both ends to close the gap?

Is there a percentage you can use to size a tank? If you have 400 gallons of water, 10 percent = 40 gallon tank?

Sometimes if you can drain the water out of it, heat it up again with a torch it will seal  itself, let cool before refilling.

Seems nice to not have to tend to the fire, actually a little weird.
Winters coming.

70 and don't touch it until it's time to shut it off.

It happens Roger, just can't remember everything.

I thought there was a thread on here about smoke hoods.

I was having the same issue with mine. I just bought this home and she came with no firewood. I bought a load of oak that had set one season cut in 8' sticks.... Still pretty green. I'm uncertain where the air settings are since the adjustments are froze up (rusted). I adjusted the fan disc to around 1/4" to 3/8" after reading others suggestions. This helped out, but I believe the biggest change came from adjusting my differential to 5 with a set point of 180. After doing this I haven't seen a temp lower then 168 and she starts gassing moment's after the fan starts. Before the fan would run a couple minutes before she'd start gassing. This also cut my wood consumption down. When possible I try to put smaller loads in more frequently, probably 4 to 5 times a day. However when I have filled it and checked it hours later it seems tent less but the important part is I no longer walk up to it not gassing.

Welcome aboard Kevin.

You will have to take the airbox cover of the back of the boiler and clean up the threaded rods that hold the disc, coat them with never seize after you put them back together.
