Usually, the blow-out problem is caused by excessive fuel flow at first--too much pressure or valve is opened too far. Once you have a bushy acetylene flame, turn up the air source to bring the flame down to a fuzzy point near the tip end. Brazing and silver soldering work better with just a little less air. My experience is with an oxy-acetylene torch, but results are similar.

Probably you are doing everything right but are you sure you are using the right tip for acetylene? Because it sounds like you have a defective tip or a clogged one.

If your flame goes out check the following:a) check your acetylene and oxygen pressure, for this kind of job acetylene should be at 4 psi and oxygen at 10.b) Check you're using the right type of nozzle for the job and this nozzle is clean.

It will lite and run for about 30 seconds and go off. If I take the top off it will lite and keep on running. but if i put the top back on it will go off.

Check the fuel nozzle for a partial blockage. I use torch tip cleaners to make sure they are clear. Don't use one that will make the hole bigger, you want one slightly smaller than the hole. Also check the fuel filter. Check both air filters also. After that you need to check the air pressure going to the fuel nozzle. Install an air pressure guage in the port with the plug that doesn't have a small hole in the center in the filter cover behind the motor. The plug that has a small hole is the one you use to adjust the air pressure. The pressure you need will be listed on the label of the heater.

Vacuum leak

I don,t know where your vacuum leak is but if you have access to an acetylene torch then you can use it to find the leak.Simply turn on the acetylene only and then run the torch tip around all of the fittings and lines until the engine revs up,that will be your source of leak.Let me know how you make out.

Repair a leak

Let me cut to the chase. You may have saved yourslf $50 by finding the leak. But by law(Sec 608) federal, you can't go further unless you are EPA Certified. And then you would need Air conditioning grade Brazing material,(way stronger than plumbing solder), Oxy\Acetylene torch, a reclaiming unit, and a vacuum pump, R22 refrigerant that you need to be certified to buy, Gauges, the list goes on and on. Unfortunately you'll have to bite the bullett and spend probably a couple hundred dollars. Sorry, but I'm shooting straight here. Good luck
