Okay, guys so I’m in the process of restoring this machine for a friend… It not old and has low hours but the previous owner never did any sort of maintenance to the burner at all! Ran it til it stopped working.
Its a 12 Volt Beckett burner.
The issue is, after a few minutes of operating at full heat the burner drips raw oil. Not very much but not okay! I don’t think it’s a broken coil because drip only starts once the burners on and has a couple minutes of run time, once burner is turned off the drip quickly stops
Transformer has good spark
Blower Fan Is moving air well
New Nozzle Installed, Correct size and angle
New Diesel Filter
New Water Separator Filter
The oil (beckett clean cut) pump seems to have good pressure set at 140psi as it should be. (needle on gauge flickers but I have a cheap pressure gauge not oil filled)
Valve Solenoid seems to cut fuel on demand… As it should… Checked the Ohms and it checked off fine.
Flow Switch seems to be working on/off
I think the problem is after drip, once I let the gun off I think some dripping of raw oil happens… But I can’t figure it out.
No black smoke, some light white smoke after the trigger is released hence why I think its (after drip)
We have a new pump and solenoid coming in tomorrow, and see if that works…
