Its unfortunate that you have been so frustrated over this matter. I will e-mail you tomorrow to arrange for you to receive these parts.
I have to say... that I am impressed with your level of service. Great Job!

Re: Dirty Filthy Flimsey Dickinson Heater

I was glad, as i read along that the idea of a fuel problem was being considered. I have never been to the New York area but it is my understanding that winters there can be brutal. I spend a great deal of time dealing with various diesel devices in the north of Canada. Every fall all of our fuel dealers switch from 'summer' diesel to 'winter' deisel. The reason being that the winter diesel has an additive that keeps the fuel from thickening, or even turning to gel in cold temperatures. I would think fuel distributors would do the same thing in New York but.... could a tank full of summer fuel be the problem? If so u can introduce the additive yourself.

When we remember we are all mad, the mysteries disappear and life stands explained.

Just a reminder that vendor disputes are not allowed on CF. in this case, the OP and the vendor have made contact, and the vendor has been very accommodating. The entire affair between them is going to email where it should be. With that in mind, this thread has run its course.
