Sorry Caleb, I lack computer skills, and a digital camera! The deposit was like gritty brown mud, but hard enough in spots to be difficult to scrape out with a screwdriver. I'm going to try boiling it out. The zinc may have added to the problem. It left room in the pipe-t where it was installed, but was long enough to nearly obstruct the pipe nipple screwed into the other end. I cut the zinc in half. A test run now showed plenty of water from the exhaust. Then I reassembled it with sealant. Now I just hope that when I run it tomorrow it doesn't drip.
