1. Love this gravity furnace because it is soooo quiet and
2. Gone through 2 vintage gas valves that failed and finally a modern new valve and it now works perfectly.
3. Spent many hours dissembling, cleaning and painting

4. The purpose of the post was to help others with a similar issue and share ideas.
What do you think of the vent cover? Good idea? Bad idea? Unexpected problems?
Great to get some relevant feedback. Thanks.
