    ANOTHER REBUILD QUESTION: I REBUILT THIS STOVE ABOUT 10YRS AGO AND AM DOING IT AGAIN. EVERYTHING IS GOING PRETTY GOOD EXCEPT I CAN'T REMEMBER HOW TO CHANGE THE THERMOSTAT CABLE--USING THE ORIGINAL CABLE AS A PULL WIRE---DO YOU PULL FROM THE CONTROL HANDLE DOWN OR FROM THE BOTTOM UP?? DOES IT MATTER? THANKS, TOM

    Averill Park, NY, on Burden Lake II...
    IIRC, the last couple of rebuilds that I did on these ole guys, I hadda make a tool that inserted thru the lower back & pulled the cable down from the top to the opening in the rear...
    Seems like I hadda bend up a clotheshanger to a certain configuration in order to get around inside the air chambers & up to the side where the wire was mounted...
    HTH
