Hey all, just got my manometer. As far as installation, is there any place on the 140 specifically to install it? I know some stoves have a place to insert the probe. Or do I just insert within the stove pipe before the barometric dampener?

Typical stokers need to use over fire air to set the draft. I don't know how Alaska does it, but Keystoker has a hole in the fire door of their boilers, and usually has a set screw in the ash doors of their stoker stoves to check the over fire draft. Keystoker specifies between-.02 to -.03 for theirs. Draft in the stovepipe doesn't really mean anything with a typical stoker unless you have a direct vent or are having trouble setting your over fire draft with a chimney. I've had my stoker going on 7 years and have never needed to check the draft in my stovepipe. I keep my over fire draft right at -.02 (after a long run so the chimney is up to operating temperature).
