I have a new to me 13ft Boler and the roof vent has been sealed shut to stop leaking. I would like to install a regular vent but a larger 14 inch not the small one that is currently on my boler. My question is how easy will it be to install it. I will have to enlarge the hole so I will be cutting the hole larger (easy?)

A jigsaw will easily do the trick. You will probably have to drill out the rivets to remove the old vent.

Use butyl tape for your seal (see attached video)
