Glad to hear you got it figured out.  At least mostly figured out.  So was the regulator giving it too much air, or not enough do you think?

For your delayed ignition, what temp are you running the heater at?

I dont know if this will help, but I found this from an o-ring manufacturers website. You will have to do some conversion to get mm's.

Just as Nubs said, all waste oil burners need cleaning a few times a year.  As for the CK kit its self, the only thing I have ever done to it is remove the nozzle and clean it.  I guess I did have to replace an o-ring one time, but other than that, the kit is very low maintenance.  Cleaning junk off the head and removing ash from the burn chamber is something I have to do a few times a year, but other than that, the system really works well.

The CK kit is what I run in my boiler.  Its a great kit!  Hey, as long as the diesel keeps the waste oil thin enough to still create a good spray and burn properly, I dont see any harm in what you are doing.  The CK kit will just help you get straight waste oil thin enough to atomize and burn properly.  It sounds like you are on your way to burning 100% waste oil!

Greetings itstheburns327!

Glad you were able to get past the anti spam measures  :D.

What kind of heater are you looking to build?  A converted home heating oil boiler is my favorite, but there are many was of doing it.

Best of luck with your project!

For sure, thats the beauty of a drip system, no power required!

Check out some of the threads here:

and here:

Maybe you can get some ideas from others that have gone down this road before.

Good luck!

The picture showed up just fine.  That is an interesting looking heater.  Are those pipes in the back the exhaust?

Sounds like a plan Tbggyoutube, turn some of that oil into heat!  I don't have any good info to contribute to building a drip system, but browse around the forum and I think there are a few threads with some nice drip systems.

Best of luck with your project and stay safe!


Waste Motor Oil / Re: Collecting/Transporting Drain oil

I dont burn anywhere near that amount, so I transport in small, easy to handle containers.  I have a collection of 15 gallon containers spread out around the area.  I try to swap the full ones out with empties during the summer.  Sometimes I run into 30 or 55 gallon barrels, but I don't have equipment to handle them, so I usually end up pumping into smaller containers.

Welcome Nubs!  Glad you found the site.  It sounds like you have a bit of experience burning oil.  Yea, post up some pics and lets see how you are making that drain oil burn!

Enjoy the forum!

Welcome to the forum MT6!  Sounds like an interesting setup you have there with the solar hot water panels.  Wow, I'm amazed that you can get that much heat out of them!  Sounds like you have a pretty nice combo with the solar & waste oil.  Good luck with your project!

Greetings Ron!  Thanks for stopping by.  We have a small community here, but it seems to grow every year.  Great story you have and I like the fact that you make all that you can.  That should prove to be very helpful in your waste oil heater project.  Are you from the states?

Have fun and stay safe!
