Look at the orfices on the manifold if these are correct sized then if it has a smokey outlet you'll have to get all the byproducts of non burned gas out of the heat exchanger before it will stop ALSO this BLACK SOOT IS FLAMABLE. It can burn when hot enoug with enough O2 getting to it. Inspect the combustion air (if so equiped) on the burner manifold adjust to allow MORE air into the orfice but 1st disassemble and clean the whole thing. YES it will be messy from my expierance but its for safety and to complete the repairs. Take the model number, BTU rating, one of the orfices and number of burners with you to a QUALITY LPGAS Supplier. they can help you decide if these are the correct size and may be able to make more advice available. Ask about setting the combustion air to clarify what I said above. 
Please grade me accordigly and if I need to be more preciceI need more information from you. THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK.

Is there a way to calibrate without 3-50 pound weights?

water weighs 10lb to the gallon ( engilish measurement-calculate amount for us gallon)
so get your self a jug and place it on the scales empty adjust the scales to zero
fill the jug with a measured amount of water (example 1 pint will weigh 1.25lbs
then set the scales to the reading of 1.25lbs
to check the scales accuracy you can add extra water to the jug (say 4 pints ) and the scale should read 5lb

For the Health-o-meter physician's beam scale, how do you know when it is in balance? What should you do to get it in balance?

For any scale you need to have a known weight to calibrate the scale. Try using something like a 5lb bag of flour or 10lb bag of potatoes.

On the top of the scale set the scale to whatever known weight you have on the platform and see if it agrees, if it is just slightly off, then use the adjustment screw to fine tune the scale, it will be at the end of the left side of the arm.

My dayton 375000 torpedo keep freezing the propane tank. What can I do to stop it?

You are drawing gas too fast for the tank to vaporize. You either need to hook the heater to a larger tank, warm your existing tank or tie two tanks together and keep one tank empty.

I have a dayton heater, older model, I just recently hooked it up and it is blowing a ton of black smoke, I wouldnt think propane would do this, is it normal? Is there a problem?

Hi, this will happen for sure with propane heaters. They are notorious for getting carboned up.It Happens a lot on central heat and air units if the gas pressure at the main gas valve is not adjusted properly on the outlet side of the valve in inches of water column.It takes 3.4"of w.c.for natural gas and used to be around 13.0"w.c.for propane.What you will have to do is to clean this unit inside until you can remove as much carbon as you can. You say it is a older model, so i would say that it has taken a long time for this to build up. I have seen new propane package units carbon up with in a week of being started due to a gas valve not set properly. I dont believe you will have to adjust you'res, just a good cleaning should take care of the problem. All fuel lines ,orfices, and where ever you see carbon build up.It can get to be a mess and I would where a dust mask also.
Good Luck.

Stick with the one pound disposable propane bottles & you will be fine. The 5lb tank is not compatable.
