Kevin,

This is an amazing engine…1/2 the price of the Aster version….I wouldn’t mind having one but the stable is more than full!

Thanks Sam, I do like it a lot. Today I dove into the jets and am cautiously optimistic I found the issue with getting both burners to fire. The jet in the left side, where the super heater is, seemed like the hole was a bit large. I replaced it with a #3 but it didn’t run very well. A #8 then seemed to fire beautifully and both burners lit without needing to angle the igniter deep into the firebox, more testing needed but this could make it easier to run. Bonus was that the fire seemed more stable, at least as best as I could see from the dental mirror.

Next on the repair list is the daylight that doesn’t keep the right burner lit when running.
