Hi Dave,

I don't know what it is but I don't understand the 2 fittings?

Is it possible that the fuel moves on to serve another purpose?

If yes, then this would be a continuous lamp.

Regards,
Wayne

I'm thinking the second connection was for compressed air. Hot bulb marine engines burners worked this way.

Hi wayne and boatbum, my thoughts are pretty much the same as boatbum as to the second outlet,one for the fuel for the lamp and one for air,the burner is 4 1/2in tall and the arm 16in long which makes me think it is off a horizontal continuous lamp engine,do you think it will be possible just to run gas through it to start an engine,cheers dave

The extra fitting could have been where a needle valve went in. A packing gland could have been screwed onto that nipple.

Hi eric, thanks for the thought, i have just cleaned both inlet holes out and they are seperate holes,the one facing upwards in the photo is the jet hole and the other comes out below and off to the side of the jet,no threads in fuel hole,so it seems that air possibly went through the lower hole,cheers dave
