You need a pressure guage to connect to the port beside the one you used to adjust the mixture. The pressure you want is listed on the data label of the heater. A pressure guage with a range of 1-15psi is best.

Air intake problem or carburater problem?


Check there are no air leaks around where the air intake rubbers are at your carburetor. It sounds like your bike is running too lean or weak which means your air/fuel mixture is running on too much air and not enough fuel. This would explain it running smoothly when you put the choke on as the choke "chokes" the majority of the air from the carburetor and allows more fuel to flow through the carburetor creating a richer mixture. There will be a mixture screw somewhere on the carburetor which will allow you to either richen (more fuel and less air) or weaken (more air and less fuel) by turning the screw either in or out. Only adjust this by a small amount (about a quarter turn at most) at a time and try the bike to see how it rides each time. After adjusting the screw each time let the engine idle for about 30 seconds or so to let it settle to the new mixture setting before riding. There will be another screw on the carburetor which is your "idle" or "tick over"speed adjustment screw which adjusts how high your engine revs while the engine is "ticking over". Turn it in to increase idling speed and out to lower the idling speed. This will probably need adjusting as you change the fuel/air mixture. I hope this helps you and good luck :o)

I have a Reddy Htr Mod 60D kerosene-diesel heater. I need to know how to fine tune the air fuel adjusting screws on the back right by the air intake filter, and which one is fuel and air. The heater...


You only adjust the one with the hole in the center. The other one is where you install an air pressure guage (0-15psi). The pressure setting is listed on the label of the heater (somewhere between 3-6 psi depending on the heater. All this is doing is controlling the air pressure/flow to the eductor that draws fuel out of the tank. Let me know if your label is wore off and don't forget to rate the answer and leave testimonial.

Is R155D the same as PRO155 ? If so , fine .... Other than that I`m not sure what else you`d need to know !? It`s real old and needs a set of filters... It fires quickly ... sounds normal ... doesn`t run...


You wrote "Is R155D the same as PRO155 ?" Answer- Yes, The R155D is a pro 155, BUT so are many other 155's and not all use the same technology. The newer ones are computerized, the older ones are not.

Yours, the R155D is computerized and uses HSI (hot surface ignitor) technology.

Filters....part number PP214 (complete filter kit).

Nose not getting red just a little


You need to adjust air/fuel mixture. At the back of the heater there is a plastic slotted set screw. That is the air mixture adjustment screw. Turn it in clockwise a 1/4 turn at a time until the nose cone gets to be about 90% reddish orange. The heater should also burn cleaner. Hope this helps.

Reddy pro155 runs for 3 to 5 seconds


Reply with the correct model number. "Pro 155" designates a series. We need to know whether you have a heater with a spark plug or a heater with an ignitor (glowbar).

Master Reddy 30,000 btu heater put out nasty fumes.


Sounds like it's not getting enough air to fuel mix, check your air inlet line for breaks or just put a new one on for a couple bucks. any fuel line thats the right diameter will work, got mine from auto zone.

Air fuel mixture screw adjustment, forced air kerosene heater


Most ready heaters have a fuel pressure setting on the back of the heater near the fan. There should be two small plastic covers, looking directly at the back, the one on the left can be removed and a pressure gauge installed. The one on the right is slotted for adjustment of pressure. I think the correct pressure for that model is 3.0 lbs.
