    A 1984 model. I don't know when they came out with the catalytic.
    I would not modify it.
    If it is a Cat model, don't burn trash, just untreated wood.
    If you want to burn trash, junk mail etc. & it is a cat type, you should be able to
    remove the catalytic piece easy enough, or it may just burn out if trash is burned.

    Modifying it may cause problems you don't foresee, & effect the burning & safety of the stove.

    I wouldn't gut it, it will be much more efficient with all the guts inside but you also want to make sure it's all in good working order. May need new parts.
