Main Vent Advice

Last year with much advice from you fine forum members I got my main vents set up. First picture with Gorton 2 and Hoffman 75 is on a 66ft 2 inch line. Second picture is 3 MoM 1s on a 47ft 2 inch line. 1/2 pipe used to make antlers. I got in a second Gorton 2 today with will go on 66ft line and I will add the Hoffman 75 to the 3 MoMs.

Now for the point. If you look at the pictures you will see the existing piping that I plugged into was bushed down from the T to what I believe is 1/4 inch which is what I hooked my antlers to. I imagine that the 1/4 pipe will actually be holding back the 2 Gortons max flow as well as the other lines max flow and I should probably remove those reducer bushings and put in a 3/4 or 1/2 bushing in there? Am I correct here? Thanks.

    If the bushing gets removed, I probably will put a nipple, then a 45 with a few inch long pipe, then another 45 before doing the vents if that all makes sense. Once again, just curious on the 1/4 pipe choking the air flow for now?

    At one time, I did crunch the numbers for a G2. 1/4" ips would do only 1 G2 adequately.
    IIRC, 3/4" will do 4 G2's.

    But it is only 2" long, of 1/4"....very short bottle neck. But still will slow the venting down. IMO

    Makes sense. I think after this upcoming heating season I will remove the bushings and maybe pipe it all to 3/4" to future proof it. I don't think I want to risk stripping or cracking anything right before heating season starts.
