Greetings CBTech.  Are you just a casual oil burner, or a tech who works on them?  Any way, enjoy the forum!

Hello Adam.  Welcome to the forum!  Yes, a little heat to stay warm helps keep you motivated on projects in the shed.  Thats the part I enjoy most is that I have a nice warm place to work in the winter and dont feel guilty for turning the temp up so it's warm enough to shed the jacket.  Enjoy the forum.  We look forward to hear how your project is going!

I think any burner is controlable with the right mix and amounts of air and fuel.
The blue burners to me appear to be putting a lot of excess air over the top of the combustion which may be the short flame.

I have been wanting to look how to do these confined flames for a long time. I'd like to build a Turbo Jet engine but I know I have to confine the flame front or Ill just melt the Turbine blades in no time. They need to run on hot gas not flame.
There are some guys that have made combustors that run on Diesel which should work the same for oil. They tend to create a pocket of air that suspends the flame and the fuel is added into the centre of the combustor and never  touches the sides therefore keeping the metal cool and the air always over supplied. A burner nozzle pumped by a power steering pump may do the job of sufficient atomisation. Another project to add onto the list of the 100 years worth I have already.

You wouldn't have understood the Chinglish instructions for the burner even if they had been at all helpful.  Guess we in the west expect that but it's a way for the Chinese to save those ever precious cents.
I have always had good luck with industrial Chinese stuff. Added some toys to the collection today. An 8 HP electric start Diesel engine, an 8 HP petrol Fire Pump, a 92CC Chainsaw and a Demolition Hammer.
Bought the chainsaw at the recommendation of a friend that has to of them and does a lot of very heavy work.  with them. So far the engine seems great but has issues with the bar and chain. Think might be transport Damage. The engine fires up easy and has loads of power.  Spose one has to be prepared for these things. I paid $125 for the thing. The Stihl is is cloned after is over $1000.  i'm confident once I get the bar issue sorted the thing will be great.

This will be my 3rd or 4th Diesel and a mate had a water pump and swore by it. I have also bought Chinese Logsplitter, wood chipper, brushcutter and pole saw and all have been great. I think a lot of over patriotic rednecks put the chinese stuff down through ignorance. Sure, some stuff is crap but all the things I have bought I couldn't complain about. My father is brand centric  and the first time I had something Chinese delivered to him he scoffed at it and wondered how long before he had to go buy a Honda. That was about 3 years ago and now his opinion is he wouldn't buy Honda again for what he can get the chinese stuff for that has already well and truly paid for itself and hasn't given any trouble either.
Can't say that for some of the ext Honda equipment he has bought which rubs salt into the wound.

One of his Honda pumps is playing up and I bought him a new Chinese coil for it the other week.  Don't know if he's tried it yet but just in case it doesn't fix the thing I bought the other pump for him and then I'll get him a Chinese carby for the Honda and see how that goes.
Honda coil was $160?  Chinese knockoff, $17 delivered.  Chinese pump I bought today, $123.

If it comes to that we will, I'm hoping the manual will surface so I can figure out how the pump is wired in. This thing looks nearly new, although I realize it's probably around 20+ years old. I basically bought it for parts and to mess with, but it's in such good shape that I may end up using it!

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

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.
