Anybody have a 'description' of how to convert to a pvc valve setup on my 235,
without it 'looking' like anything has been changed from 'stock'?  I'd like 
things
to 'look' original.  I would like the draft tube to remain, even if made to be
non-functionable.  In a pvc set-up, could the draft tube be 'plugged' without 
harm?
Thanks for you suggestions.
