I've decided to repair the stove and have a couple of questions. First I have removed the following parts so that I could get at everything that needed replacing, Top, both front doors, side burn plates, topload mechanism side cover, inner burn plate, rear burn plate, damper frame and damper, and the complete cat chamber. I have inspected all parts and none are warped or cracked. I have cleaned out all ash and loose mortar from the stove and have blown air along all the seams. In a couple of the seams I see air blow through. I am entertaining taking the stove all the way down and wonder if there are any gotcha's I need to be aware of? It appears rather straight forward but would like to hear from someone who has done it. Secondly, How hard is it to put back together? Are there possible problems where I have to remortar seams? Here are a few pics I have of it in its current state.
