Re: Coney Dog

That reminds me of the old A&W Root Beer we had here in town. Tuesday nights they’d sell coney dogs for 10 cents in the early 70s. Even when inflation took it to 15 cents it felt like a deal! Thanks to this forum I just learned they were Detroit style.

Re: How many years do you all get out of a car battery?

3-5 years here in the states. I purchased a new 2004 made in Japan 4Runner that was delivered with a Panasonic battery. It lasted (the battery) 14 years. After it finally died I found out you can’t get them here.

Re: Cleaning a F/A tube with metering rod (long winded)

That was great! Even tho I am fluent in F/A operation, you gave me an ah ha! moment with the too large of a pickup hole giving a rich light up experience. I have at least one I may want to just replace the current F/A assembly

It will screw in. It’s meant to be tight. I think your efforts are better spent trying to multiply the efforts to screw it in. Homemade fount vise with wrench, or strap wrench with fount upside down and valve in a vise.

Re: 220E Burner Frame Removal

The problem isn’t likely to be between the tip cleaner and the main valve. It’ll probably be the F/A tube which means you’ll need to pull the the main valve.
