It looks like a blockage somewhere in the system, does it have a exhaust vent check its clear and also check the burner if its clear.

1991 Alfa Spider Veloce - Had stored car for about a year. Started and ran fine for about 2 miles. Got in the car 3 months later, car smokes, spits out fluid from exhaust. Am draining gas, but also...

Well, I can tell you that white smoke is usually a sign of water being burned in the cylinders and a blueish color smoke is usually a sign of oil being burned. I would drain gas, replace fuel filter, and do an oil/filter change as well but replacing the injectors probably won't do much for you. I would make that one of the last things to do. You may also want to add an additive to help "dry" the fuel system as well.

Do i need to replace filter if i have been using kerosene and want to switch to diesel

No, the kerosene is number 1 fuel oil and Diesel is number 2. No.2 is a heavier fuel with more BTU's than the kerosene. After you have burned the diesel for awhile, you may want to change the filter. If you have trouble getting the diesel to burn, mix it with 25% kerosene and it will flow and go through the nozzle easier

Heater wont start.Fan goes, Starts to heat, then blows a couple clouds of smoke and dies. Ive cleaned filter, new fuel. Cant figure out what adjustment I should be doing. Glow Plug? What else?

take the shield off and see if it burns with more combustion air. If it does then the heater isnt getting enough air. look for a shutter or set screw near the burner that should be the primary air adjustment. sounds like you have been working on the fuel side already. You may check the orfice to see if it is partially blocked, use a safety pin and gently **** it out. also check the burner tube

Pro 110, runs 10 min., blows white smoke ,shuts off

the first thing you need to do is go back to useing K1 kerosene, diesel fuel not only burns dirty but also has a tendency to gel up in cold weather which could be makeing it hard for the heater to draw the proper amount of fuel. To reset the pressure you will need a gage, it should run at about 6-7 psi. you can order a pressure gage from mr. heater online, they are by far the cheapest I have found as they are the actual manufacturer or call 1-800-251-0001

Sears forced air kero heater wont start, spitting fuel out front

sounds like the ignitor is bad, mine would try to light and do the same thing. I noticed one night that it was arcing out the entire length of the wires to the plug. If you have a good spark then i would suggest a CAD flame sensor, very cheap.
