    Shackle is my word. There's probably another word for it, but I don't know what it is. You'll see it. ;)

    If your gasket is 100% flat under the cat frame, and the metal-metal contact is not on the bottom of the frame, but on the side of the frame, toward the back of the stove, that sounds like it might be okay. . .

    I tested it,it's underneath.Shouldn't have flattened out already.10-4 on the shackle.I just checked why the bypass was catching.From the handle to the horseshoe shaped threaded piece inside the stove that hooks this onto the damper plate itself,there are 2 nuts,the bottom 1 is hitting on the handle.If it were turned a bit i think it would clear but whereas i can work it and it wont cause wear i'll leave well enough alone.

    Yeah, that.

    On mine, there's some play in the "axle" of the handle that lets it slide a bit. With the handle axle slid out away from the stove, the nut clears when the handle is rotated. ;hm
