If it settles down after 4 or 5 tries, I agree with ShopSpecialties, I believe you're sucking air somewhere.

Selling my Thermobile AT 307. Unit has been used for about three or four years, it was bought as new old stock still in the box from a farm supply store. This unit is pretty much trouble free and is easy to start. Has a built in 15 gallon or so oil tank, built in circulation fan, and it does a good job of heating my 30'x48'x10' ceiling pole barn in the winter. Going to a furnace style conversion to make it easier to keep the shop warm all the time. This same unit is now sold in the states by Thermobile as a waste vegetable oil heater; a friend of mine bought one the same time I did and runs his on veggie oil and says it stays much cleaner than WMO. If you have a source of WVO and want a cheap way to heat with it, this might be your best option. Located in zip 46365, Northern Indiana, and I can help with hauling if necessary for a reasonable distance. Asking $950 OBO, these go for over $2000 new. Thanks!

Water goes to the bottom of tank so it can be easily drained. Your pickup screen should be at least a couple of inches off the bottom.

The nozzle comes apart and there is 3 pieces. Hold it upright with a pair of pliers on the stem and unscrew the top with your 5/8". Spray out the 3 pieces with brake clean onto a paper towel to see if anything comes out. If black carbon pieces come out you need to do a burner rebuild. Clean burn recommends burner rebuilds every year and I say every 2-3 years is good as long as the power is turned off in the Summer.

My continuing follow-up and posts of restoring an oil burner. I have read many people trying to figure out the "carburetors". Oil stoves don't have carburetors, they have oil control valves. Yes they do use floats, but are gravity fed. Many of the oil control valves made in the 1940's and 50's are no longer available, however adaptable brand new replacements are available. My project pic is labeled oil "control".

I should also mention that the oring is a size 007.  I found them at Ace Hardware & Oreilly Auto Parts.  They seem pretty common.

I have seen several creative ideas like this that can help preheat the oil.  It's these type of creative ideas that can lead to success.  Give it a try and let us know how it works!
