chimney lining

I have taken down my chimney and now in the process of putting it back together. It was unlined and I am going to put a flue tile in. I am wondering if anyone has ever lowered a flue tile down into a chimney so that I don't have to tear it all the way down. I have the room to put an eight inch tile in. My chimney starts in the basement but is filled up to the clean out in the kitchen. I only have to put less than ten tiles in. Any suggestions?

I've done something similiar to this but being the chimney was a rather large one I got right inside and my helper lowered the flues down.In your case I wouldn't know how to actually lower it down and furthermore you won't be able to see a proper connection to your thimble down at the bottom-you also won't be able to mortar up the top of each flue for the next one to sit on.I would reccomend a chimney liner for your situation-it's a long metal pipe,usually insulated in some way.I would not recommend blindly dry stacking 20 feet of flues.......
