How does a power vent play into setting the draft? The power vent is speed adjustable. How do I go about setting the baro and the speed correctly?

It doesn't. The baro works by keeping a limit on the difference between the atmospheric pressure inside the stovepipe and the room it is in. Whether something is sucking on the stovepipe or not, the baro cares not, only the relationship between those two pressures.
Nothing is impossible for people who don't have to do it themselves.

I would refer to the power vent's instructions. If that is no help, I would bring the speed up until the baro starts to crack open and then back down until it's closed. Ideally, you don't want it pulling the baro open if you don't have to.

Most important, make sure the knob is in it's center of travel and fill it slowly until the fluid level gets close to zero. Remember to hook the low port to the pipe and leave the high port open to the room. This will give you negative values on the positive side of the scale. I used a 16 inch length of brake between the pipe and the rubber tubing. The tubing seals nicely on the brake line. The other end penetrates the pipe about 2 inches. The folded tin on the brake line acts as a stop so it doesn't go in too far. See pics :) Oh and disregard all those screws in the pipe. They are sealing holes where I had mounted a couple snap switches in the past for various experiments :lol:

I forgot to mention a little piece of tubing on the other port hanging down to keep dust out.

You can fill it on a level table top and then mount it. Be careful not to lay it down after filling it. I don't remember if I stood it up to fill it. I think I did. Try it. The pipe install looks great :)

Yes new pipe for me next year.. :lol:
