Vermont Castings Old Intrepid 1302 - firebrick replacement

    I just acquired an old VC Intrepid, model 1302. This is the pre-1988 non-cat model. The stove is I great shape, but I think it needs the firebricks replaced. There are currently two bricks in the stove, mounted vertically below the upper fireback. The manual I have shows three bricks total, with one located horizontally below, but it's not clear if that diagram is for the intrepid ( the manual is for multiple stoves).

    Any 1302 owners out there that can offer insight and brick location?

    You've got the right diagram, don't worry. Is there something wrong w/the brix? Why replace them? Well, to do that you must remove the upper fireback, held by 2 special bolt things w/ acorn nuts on the back of the stove, then the wrole thing comes out and bingo, there's your brix!

    If the one most visible is cracked, just swap it w/ the one lying down which will be in good shape.
