    Working on finishing the install of my new Hearthstone Homestead.
    I attached my DVL pipe to the supplied oval adapter, and its fit appears
    "loose" and not so airtight prior to securing w/ screws - normal for Homestead?
    I'm wondering ifI should take a mallot to it ("gently") for force it in more snug prior
    to scewing into place, or perhaps just secure & furnace cement the seam
    & leave it??

    Why not try to push some small, round stove gasket material into the gaps It'll come apart much easier & there is virtually no mess.

    I remember my old Homestead was the same, I just used furnace cement.

    Yep, you were right - this was the best solution to fill the gap, not messy too!

    I wish I had thought of that before I made a mess with stove cement. Doh!:oops:
