Was a 'fat finger' reply. Keep in mind (thought I don't discuss it on here, I'm on chemo for secondary liver cancer and the chemo severely limits my dexterity, IOW, I push the wrong key sometimes. It's personal hell for me but I keeps me on this side of the dirt...for now.I have to say it
Sidecar you don't have to cry about it
What I did long ago is I took a cutoff wheel in my angle grinder and carefully removed the outer galvanized pipe and exposed the inner stainless pipe back to the rolled in crimp. removed the insulation and fit just the stainless inner liner to the combustion air outlet, applied some stinky RTV to the inner surface and used a heavy duty Witek (worm clamp to secure it. I never take that section off. Stays on the stove all the time because it's a straight shot (single piece) through the wall thimble to the cleanout tee outside and it is about 1/4 bubble vertical from level. The stove isn't close to any combustible material anyway and it don't get that hot. I check my venting with an IR non contact thermometer often.The only thing I have ever sealed, is the pipe to the stove adaptor.

Not quite ready for the final act quite yet.
Why I use a laptop. I have this on my phone as well but never use it. You'd never be able to read what I post. Just use it for clls and flying the drones.Best wishes to you Sidecar.
I’ve got skinny fingers and still can’t hit the right letters on my phone half the time.
Easy on and easy off... To a point. I don't do anything with the exterior venting but I will use the black stuff this year when it comes apart for cleaning. Only place I worry about leaks (smoke and smell) is inside the house. It arrived 2 days ago btw. Being lazy about taking it apart and pressure washing it inside.Tape it with aluminum foil tape
High temp non-adhesive sealant. I use it on any nongasketed joint in a pellet vent system that may need to be disassembled.
