Lay it on the ground with the seam up...stand over the pipe and sort of
push the sides of the pipe together with your feet down towards the
middle of the pipe...you just want to keep it sort of close.
Start at one end...grasp both "sides" of the pipe with your hands like
you are choking someone... start the male end into the female end and
once you have them together push in and work your way on down toward
the other end. Its not too hard...keep your thumbs right at the seam
and sort of push down on the seam while pushing in from the sides with
your hands. Once you get it going it should go ok.... IF you bugger up
or kink the pipe you can gently pry open the female slot a tad with a
screwdriver... dont do this unless absolutely neccesary as it will
loosen the seam.
Rear seam? There is only one seam that most
people put in the rear. Offset the seams slightly
will mostly like solve your problem.
The real question is which way do you put the pipe
in. If the overlap is on top, you can get stuff
flowing down the chimney and out the joint. Best
way is to have the insert on top.
