Over Hill Sailing Club
I have an old Shipmate 710CH pressurized kero heater in my boat which is still quite functional but could use some new parts. The cleaning needle assembly is obviously gone so I have to occasionally clean the nozzle manually and I believe the nozzle orifice has become too large from wear. When on full blast, it gets TOO hot and it's hard to keep a clean blue flame when turned down. It looks like a standard kero burner assembly and it's possible that the burner could be changed out entirely with a new one. Has anyone replaced/renovated one of these lately? The thing is very efficient, warms the cabin nicely and I'd like to service it and keep it.
