how do I remove the vent stack on my potterton flamingo bo

This answer was rated:

how do I remove the vent stack on my potterton flamingo boiler.

XXXXX XXXXX : Is it a chimney glued version?
XXXXX XXXXX : *flued

I think so the flue is concreted into the wall

XXXXX XXXXX : Are you trying to remove from the boiler?
XXXXX XXXXX : Does it point upwards or out the back of the boiler?

it points up and bends into the wall at about 60 degrees. I am just trying to find out if I can just chip out the concrete type stuff on the top of the boiler and lift it off or is there a better way

XXXXX XXXXX : Ok, chimney flued
XXXXX XXXXX : the concrete on the top is standard fire cement, you can chip it out and replace it with something off the shelf
XXXXX XXXXX : "The hotter it gets the harder it sets"

thanks for your help
