    Bill, it seems like you worked really hard on this rebuild. Now it is time to enjoy the fruits of your labor! Great looking stove and nice job on all that you've done!

    600 griddle temp and shut it down, you got it! it will purr for hours and i almost always have coals in the morning to start a new fire...and that is after about 9 hours of burn. im rebuilding mine this summer i think, i hope i have similar success.

    Great job. i appreciate the pics - in case I need a similar repair in the future.

    I found my Resolute Acclaim ran a lot smoother after I rebuilt it.

    Nice Timing. It rots fininshing a stove repair then waiting weeks or months for cool weather!

    Nice job. Looks like it's ready for another 20-30 years of service.

    Hey Bill,
    I did not know this was one of the pre 1990's model Defiant. I thought for sure this was a modern EPA rated non cat stove. Surprised to see it in the classic stove forum!

    I'm planning on a rebuild for my defiant this summer. Where did you get your parts? I'm searching for the best place.

    It is a 1610 model from 2005 right? This makes it an EPA rated non cat stove correct? Again, great job on the rebuild, it looks great!

    Bill, I would suggest putting VC Defiant 1610 N/C in your signature just to clear things up. People would know what you've got right away then!
