FYI-Smelly Torpedo Kerosene Heater

I finally figured out why my torpedo kerosene heater smells so much worse than
when it was new. I changed the filters, set the fuel pressure and cleaned it
out, but no difference. So I removed the spray nozzle, disassembled it and found
a real small "O" ring on the end of the brass nozzle that seals it to the plastic
housing, replaced it and "bingo" it made all the difference in the world.
Just thought some of you would like to know
