Hi guys! new here and first post. I fell into an unbelievable deal this week. A friend of mine contacted me about an older couple he knew that was moving into a retirement home. He said they have a Jotul stove they are giving away to anyone who wants it. So I figured it would be an old burned out stove. So I drive an hour and a half a come to find a Jotul 118 from February of 1980. They used this stove ONE YEAR and never burned it again. This thing looks brand new! There is not a chip in the green enamel, there are barely signs inside that the stove was ever even burned. I was extremely excited and almost felt bad that they gave me the little bugger for nothing So my question is in the chimney connector. They had it hooked to the side of the stove and I want to rear vent it. I switched all the little panels around to rear vent it (screws came out like butter its been used so little). The problem I am having is the connector is hitting the top lip of the stove since it is a hair wide out the back of the stove. Does anyone know what I am doing wrong or does the 118 have to be side mounted vent?
