2016.11.19 - Remounting the Heater

Moving the heater mounting legs to the other side of the frame did the trick and the flue now clears the beam. Of course, then I had to fire it up to see how hot the cabin side and frame became.

Then it was back to the cabin upstands.


As you can see the flue now clears the beam. I also switched from screws to bolts as trying to tighten up screws on the other side of the heater was too difficult and since I'l gong to use bolts when they arrive...


The is about an inch clearance between the flue and the beam so it much have only just fouled it before.


That chimney is a long way up!


And the cabin upstands but carefully clamped this time!
