Re: Bulkhead diesel heater - Questions!

Pulsepump or gravity?? These critters usually work best with a pulse pump.working against needle. or several ft of head min. Set and run too low and a big cleanup ,,soot on deck is nasty. My best event was a complete plug up, ..(big Dickinson galley stove) Vacuumed it out sucking a glowing remnant, which burned a hole in the bag which emptied into the galley. Too bad it was before you tube.... Great learning experience
