    Sirs:

    I have a ten year old Vermont casting's Intrepid ll model 1990 wood stove that I believe needs a new refractory chamber. What are the mechanics needed to do this. The rlacment cost is $189.00, but the dealere has no information or replacment .

    Thanks

    George, the above referenced link is actually one that I started a while ago. I did end up rebuilding the entire stove and found it pretty easy to work on.

    Here is the link to the owners manual that describes the process:

    http://literature.mhsc.com/vermont_castings/manuals/2000966_Intrepid_II_30.pdf

    Start on page 30 in the right column, pretty straight forward.

    If you get stuck I have pictures of the rebuild with a rebuild manual direct from VC.

    While you are in there I would recommend you inspect and clean the cat too.

    Good luck.
