    OK. I took apart my pipes that lead into my chimney. Had a warm spell and I thought I would clean them out real good. Problem is, I can't rememeber if The pipe that feeds into the top of the furnace should be sitting right on top of the baffle plate
    (as far as it will go ), or if I should lift it a little and secure it in place. Any help?

    Look real close at it. Should be a line on the outside of the pipe where it stopped before... In the absence of wear marks or lines, I'd say off the top of my head that you don't want the pipe protruding into the boiler. It has the potential to obstruct, even partially, the smoke path.
