Hi. Woke up. Webasto fan / burner surged. Just old ...Died after many good years of flawless running. Needs complete overhaul
Hydronic system under construction. Have hot water
but no matrix boxes yet.
I removed our trusty Newport and put parts
ashore. 6 hours later, after two years without running, I reinstalled the Newport, the chimney and the H cap.
Fixed up a temporary fuel tank
and sort of cleaned the heater interior parts
Fired it up after two years. Took a while to remember all the places to clean the fuel flow. Now, on a gravity 5 gallon jug, itís running perfect. Nice blue flames above the ring. Pilot house getting warm and dry. I will never remove it again.
One needs to re engineer
several things to max this heater but itís so simple.
Iím amazed how easy it was to completely re install it.
No electricity. Simple. It does not heat a 60í boat but we are toasty tonight with some heat. Please consider the cumulative experience of those who post.
Show me the boats you have built with your own two hands...how long at sea...where? Itís not perfect for all boats, but Iím a warm and happy manatee.
Mark the manatee.
