Hi all,

I'm going ahead and putting a request out here and on a few other sites for these items. Next season (2015) I plan on adding a cabin heater and I would like to use the removable ABI designed "Charlie Noble" smoke stack, along with the deck plate that's made to go with it. Unfortunately ABI is dearly departed and I did not plan ahead enough to buy one before they closed down an stick it in a locker until I needed it.

I know that there are adapters that can be used with other smokestacks with a 3" pipe, so the main thing I need, if I can only have one, it is the deck plate.

So, if anyone has either of these items that they are willing to part with, or has seen one sitting in a consignment ship recently, post a reply or send me a PM.

The part number for the deck plate is ABI #120242



The smoke stack part number is ABI #120010



Thanks for any help! (I know it's a long shot...)

Yep, that's on my radar, and that's what I'll do if I can't find the ABI kit. But the ABI system is superior IMO in that it is designed to be removable (the Charlie Noble) and the through deck system seals up with a standard 3" deckplate.

This hardware is pretty heavy duty. I can't imagine that there isn't one around out there in a scrap yard, consignment shop or someones garage, that is in good enough shape, even if it's pretty old. So, I'll keep looking until I find one or it's time to put in my diesel heater system, whichever comes first.

If I don't find one, I'm pretty sure I can take the item you linked and turn it into a serviceable solution.

Thanks!

ABI no longer exists, shame they had some good items.
I bought one of the last one they made of both deck fitting and CN, feel lucky.
Try monitoring ebay and google the consignment shops (Oriental, St Augustine, Annapolis, and Fort Lauderdale) and phone them periodically.
