Home Comfort woodburning cookstove

My husband & I just bought a Home Comfort cook stove at an auction. We think it is from the 1920's. It is grey granite and in beautiful condition. We have some problems with it that maybe someone out there can help us with. The round cast iron burners fit in very loose and are smaller than the opening. The whole cast iron top fits very sloppy and there are spaces all around. Also the cast iron is much thinner than our old Monarch combination wood/electric stove that we plan to sell. It also smokes when first starting the fire in the morning. Our Monarch stove never did. The oven is also slow to heat on the Home comfort. Will the iron expand with use or do we need to somehow correct it to make everything fit tighter. The stove is a showpiece but we need to have it be able to use it the way it was intended. We sure would appreciate any help you can offer. Thank you. Barbara.
