    Yes it would

    The reason I gave the links were some of the articals in the links explains the venting
    and sometimes it could be from air leaks from ash pans and doors or blockage in the Ash trap passages.

    thank you for your help i did check all my gaskets and i have cleaned the stove many times because it was black soot building up
    even after cleaning it back to back thats why i thought it was my draft
    the 90 then going horizontal for almost 3 ft got me worried
    thanks agian
