Mudflap64 10 Posted November 22, 2012 Ok, all you guys/gals are good with this type of stuff. I have a Reddy Heater 150,000 btu torpedo heater thats acting strange. It shuts off after about 5-8 minutes of run time. I re-tuned it last year, but now it's acting crazy. It burns fine until it shuts down. If I reset it right after the switch trips it will not fire!......It just blows out raw fuel. If I let it sit for a few minutes it will fire back up and run good for another five minutes or so then shuts down again. I've replaced the plug, cleaned the filter & nozzle, pump housing, checked all the lines for the pump & it all looks good. The photocell is clean & the fact that it shut's down when it doesn't fire back up tells me the photocell is functioning properly. The last thing I'm thinking is it possibly has some water in the fuel tank. It looks clean but here is my question.....can I simply mix some dry gas ( isopropyl alcohol) with the kerosene or should I use some type of diesel style fuel drier??? I don't want to blow something up. It really acts like it has moisture in the fuel but what do I use for "dry gas" in kerosene??? Thanks for any advice.
