    Hi guys, I just joined this morning and was hoping someone could help me out or point me in the right direction. I've been lurking for a few days doing some reading and finally needed to register to ask for some advice.

    I just recently purchased a slightly used 13-NC to replace a god-knows-how-old Franklin Olympic wood stove. We went to hook up the brand new 6" black pipe that I bought and the pipe does not fit into the collar on the 13-NC. Am i just missing something here or is there a trick/other part needed to fit the pipe in? There is a label on the pipe that indicates the direction of the flow so I believe I'm using the correct end and have it oriented properly.

    Thanks and please forgive if this information is already posted on here somewhere and I just missed it.

    Just to make sure we cover the basics. The crimped (wrinkly) end of the pipe goes down into the collar. (is this single wall pipe, or double?)

    It is single wall.

    And actually, the pipe does not have a crimped end. It is smooth, but does appear to be a bit tapered when compared to the other end. The name of the brand escapes me right now, I'm at work and don't have the pipe with me.

    Could it be that I was given the wrong stuff? I went to a stove/fireplace store for the pipe, not a Depot or Lowe's to try to make sure that I get the correct stuff.

    i'll let someone else respond, but it sounds to me like you have the wrong one. like a pipe with two female ends. I dunno. I don't remember seeing a 3ft+ section of pipe like that, though. usually 6"-12" when it's Male/Male like that.

    How long is this section of pipe?

    It's a 24" section of black pipe.

    I also have a slip connector too to make up the total height I need to reach the chimney opening.

    Thanks for the help. I'd like to be able to go back to the store with some knowledge.

    I may have a lot of posts, but don't mistake that for a lot of knowledge. Let someone else weigh in on this...

    Looks like I just need to get a stove top adapter: "AC-1677 Stovetop Adapter - For 6" Pipe (2 lbs. each)".

    Can't believe that Englander wants $12.50 to ship a 2lb pipe of pipe. Oh well, the stove is useless with out it so might as well go and order it.

    That's weird to me. I thought the 12 and the 13 were pretty much the same stoves. My 12 has the MALE (crimped) end of a 6" pipe slid right down into it. I made cuts on opposite sides for the damper's rod, otherwise you can't slide the pipe down quite far enough.

    Danno many of the 22 gauge welded seam single wall pipes don't have a crimped end on them.
