I have an older master kerosene salomander style heater, Model #B160 serial #CKO789, plug in, turn on, set thermostat, fan comes on, 10-15 secs. later it lights, burns for 15-20 secs then flame goes out and it blows smoke for 20 secs. then it relights and does the same thing over and over ???

The first thing you need to do is put some kerosene in it, it's a simple step that a lot of people tend to forget. After that make sure it's plugged in and turned on and it should fire right up. Hope this was helpfull poolmistress. You could also have your husband look at it, i hear he is pretty good with stuff like that.
You may want to try Master Parts at 800-446-1446 or online at www.masterparts.net. You would need the correct model number. The only you gave is a serial number. You should be able to find the model number located on the heater near the serial number.
You don't state whether this heater has the old style spark plug technology or the newer Hot Surface Ignitor technology. Troubleshooting will be different, depending on the style of heater, because the electronics are different.
You ask "what are the two adjustments screw heads on the back of heater". As stated by tros1 these are A. an air pump adjustment screw, and B. a pressure relief valve.
