1. Removing the existing Air Tubes
The air tube sits in a socket that is welded to one side of the stove and is held in place by a retaining collar with two push or roll pins on the other side. Remove the push pins by pulling them out with pliers or by prying them out with a flat blade screwdriver. Remove roll pins by using the pointed end of the roll pin tool and a hammer to drive the roll pin into the center of the air tube. Slide the retaining collar toward the center of the stove. You should be able to remove the air tube by pulling it down and out of the socket. If you can not do this, then you will need to cut the tube in two, and then remove and discard the pieces.
2. Installing the new replacement tubes
a. Slide the retaining collar onto the end of the air tube with the single hole close to the edge.
b. Place the opposite end of the tube into the socket that is welded to the side of the stove. Align the single hole near the edge of the tube with the single hole in the stub of the pipe welded to the opposite side of the stove.
c. Slide the retaining collar to the right so that it over laps the air tube and the pipe stub on the right side of the firebox.
d. Line up the holes in the retaining with the hole in the pipe stub and the hole in the end of the air tube. Using the roll pin installation tool, install 2 roll pins into the holes in the retaining collar to lock the air tube in place.

It appears to be much thicker walled than the original, which is a good thing. The installation tool is bizarre. Looks like a Rube Goldberg design.
I waited until the original tube was about to fall out
