I'd be buried in dog crap before I'd put a stainless liner in that chimney. I wish it was mine cuz yours will never have to be replaced, my stainless double wall will.

Even if there are leaks somewhere in that chimney, it will likely draw air into the chimney thru the leak before it would leak out of it. Heat rises and would draw air into the chimney thru the leak, if one exists. If there are leaks in your living space, they should be easy enough to find using smoke or candles, then shove some mortar in it. I hope that makes sense so you understand.

There are a lot of chimney and draft experts on here and they know more than me, but thats just my opinion of it.

the flu liners look ok,some mortar loss at the joints but thats common.For the bricks that are missing mortar,either repoint the joints or wire and plaster up the entire brick work to seal and help with some structual benifets.Find a mason to cut and install and reseal the old thimble hole.Just rember that you need to have the single wall pipes 18" from combustionable material.

Yep, liners look fine & that chimney's been there for a couple years I'd bet--tell your chimney sweep to fk off & get that mason, or do the thimble work yourself--- it all looks fine from your pix--maybe SMITTY will post some pix of his chimney that he's been using for years. :)

Hey Matt, looks like the flashing needs (or needed) some attention!

Go to the local brick/block yard and ask for a mason recommendation for the mortar work.

No way would I put ss liner in chimney, get mason to touch up mortar and add thimble. Listen to the members and you'll be happy you did.

Hello again guys. Well chimney sweep came and looked. Still pushing s/s liner, but here's his reasons: 1) Oil burner flue is in sad shape next to it. Afraid the oil burner and coal exhaust ever leaked between flues (probably already happens) more damage could happen. 2) Afraid the coal acid will corrode the existing morter joints because the morter is already weak. Asked about warranty. Said if anything ever happened parts and labor are both covered. May be I should just do it till I can have the chimney rebuilt the right way. Even if I get five or ten years. Will definitely be in a better financial situation. Oh he also said they wouldn't repoint the attic segment but just cover it with mesh and special morter. To add strength. I'll still call a couple masons. New comments? Thanks Matt

Keep in mind, draft is negative pressure...weak, but negative.
A lot of coal chimneys out there...they have just as weak mortar.
In the end...ya got to do what gives you that peace of mind, though. ;)
