Ok thanks
If I want to check the oil mist or stream can I do it with jumpers like the electrode?

As long as the nozzle is clean and you have a cloud in the firebox it should be fine. I have never felt the need to spray oil outside the box.

Houston we have lift off. It fired up and leveled off after excess oil burnt off.
I assume the electrode was the issue.
Any advice setting the combustion air or air pressure?

That is good to hear. Set air pressure 12-14 psi and leave it. Moving on to combustion air is something you will do by sight. If you close it down the flame should grow and be bright yellow. Then you want to open it back up and the flame should pull back and start to give you orange tips on your bright yellow flame.

I really appreciate your help. If there is any thing I can do in the future let me know. I have a fair amount of experience with autos and trucks. Again thanks.
