The 3" TYpe B double wall is fine.

Note from manual the 3" is large enough for up to 75,000 BTU.

"A3. All heaters come with a factory installed vent adapter for attaching the vent pipe to the heater (3” for model sizes 30-75, 4” for model sizes 100-125). Attach the vent pipe to the adapter with 3 non-corrosive screws. (Drill pilot holes through the vent pipe and adapter prior to screwing in place)."
