Re: Dickinson Newport diesel heater - no fuel flow
No idea on the PO, however since the tank is full of diesel that I didn't put there, I can only assume that it was diesel before and continues to be so. If the flow rate out of the bottom of the metering valve is correct, then the fuel viscosity is correct as well. I'll double check the rate next time I am up there but as I said originally, it's in the right ballpark and it would only flow slower, not not at all.
It's all just odd. Only think I can think of is air is getting into the system somehow, that would not let the fuel level in the burner pipe rise above the point where the air was coming in correct? Maybe the seal on the metering valve is shot, fuel still flows through it but air comes in from the valve itself when open.
