Vulcan oil heater

I have a fairly old Vulcan oil heater (it was installed in May 1970). . The model could be 10-05, (the serial number is: 29403).. When I was giving it a clean up, I accidentally pulled off all the leads from their push-on terminals, and I'm not sure where they go back. Can anyone supply me with a schematic wiring diagram that even a fool could follow? My e-address is: Thank you. John.

    Almost exactly the same problem as John. If it is possible to obtain the schematic diagram he received & hopefully get it working again.

    Hi, my vulcan has given us years of trouble free service but recently it will not lite off, the red lite comes on and the fuel filter is clean, if you could pass on a copy of the circuit diagram so i can troubleshoot the unit that would be greatly appreciated.

    30 Year old Vulcan Oil heater that is not lighting up but only smoking when attempting to switch it on. It has been working well until this just happened.

    It's John again. The Vulcan heater is working 100%, but ONCE AGAIN we have run out of oil, and the prices they are charging to fill the tank are totally beyond a joke. My pension just won't stretch to filling it any more, so it's now plenty of clothes and blankets if we're watching T.V. But there are probably people a lot worse off than I am, so what's the point of complaining?. .

Regarding the wiring on my ancient Vulcan oil heater...I have only just received a wiring diagram (dated January 1969), which I am just about to get stuck in to. I hope that I can follow it (the drawing looks like the last copy of something that's been copied 1,000 times before on one of those old Roneo, wet ink, wind-it-by-hand copiers). The drawing came from a Vulcan agent on the very far side of Adelaide. Here's hoping. Ooroo, John. .

How do I find the model number for my Singer sewing machine? The model number is not on the machine. The serial number is B684078. It was made in the early 1900's.

  1. 1990 - present. For sewing machines manufactured since about 1990, look for the model number on the handwheel side of the machine near the on/off switch or the electric cord receptacle.
  2. 1970 - 1989. You will find the model number on the front panel of machines manufactured in the 1970s and 1980s.
  3. 1960 - 1970. ...
  4. Before 1960.

Serial # range for marlin model 60 with 18 shot tube and last shot bolt hold open

On Marlin-branded Model 60 rifles, the first two digits of the serial number indicate the year of manufacture. For example, if the serial number starts with 18... The 18 is significant, for subtracting it from 2000 gives the date of manufacture for the rifle, 1982. Likewise, a serial number starting with 17 would be a rifle manufactured in 1983.

This method has not been uniformly followed. It is valid only from 1971 through 1999. Prior to 1971, the first two digits indicated the year of manufacture. For example, a rifle with a serial number starting with 70... would have been made in 1970. Starting in 2000, this same old method has returned; the first two digits once more indicate the year of manufacture directly, with no subtraction required.

Just installed a vulcan oil heater, but when you start it up it will only burn yellow flames and keeps going out and will smoke, then relight with a bang,

Sounds like you may have the wrong size tip on your oil burner. A yellow flame indicates too much fuel not enough oxygen.
