But, it's rreeaall easy so I had to post in case someone else out there is wondering about this now.
(The following has been added from my last post in this thread)
I found what is called a "Starting Collar" in the roof venting section of Home Depot. This specific one was 8" and seemed the perfect size in both diameter and height. I think it's a Master Flow SCF8. It has a bunch of tabs which I bent to help get into position. I then used the same tabs to attach it to the bar that the burner is also attached to. I had to drill two holes for attaching this collar and that was the hardest part. Some #8x1/2 sheet metal screws are holding this on perfectly.
A pair of tin snips made quick work of the notching required to go over the burner neck.More detail on how I attached the SCF8:
Basically, I used a couple of the tabs for attaching the SCF8 to the rails that hold the burner. I think I drilled 1/8" holes if I remember right. The screws were sheet metal so they are pretty forgiving. You will want to drill a hole that is appropriate for the screw size you get no matter what. I uploaded two new pics to further illustrate the attachment.SCF8 at HomeDepot
Look how nice and new that burner looks...Mine looks a hundred years old.
Nice wind screen. I think I'll make one today. I usually just wrap some sheet metal around the whole burner, but that's cool too...
