Outside air kit applications Refer to separate instruction sheet supplied with AF/AFG outside air kit for installation. This optional kit allows combustion air to be piped directly to the burner (Beckett part number 51747). Clearances to burner and appliance Provide space around burner and appliance for easy service and maintenance.
Attach air tube (if not already installed) If using a ﬂ ange and gasket, slide them onto the air tube. Then attach the air tube to the burner chassis using the four sheet metal screws provided. Refer to Figure 3 for details.
You will need to reset the “Z” dimension if you replace the air tube or nozzle line assembly. The Beckett Z gauge (part number Z-2000) is available to permit checking the F head “Z” dimension without removing the burner from the appli- ance.
Place the end of a ruler at the leading edge of the head and, us- ing a straight edge across the end of the air tube, measure the distance to the end of the tube. A Beckett T501 gauge may also be used.
Bolt the burner to the appliance using the fac- tory-mounted ﬂ ange or an adjustable ﬂ ange. Mounting dimensions When using the Beckett universal adjustable ﬂ ange, mount the air tube at a 2° downward pitch unless otherwise speciﬁ ed by the appli- ance manufacturer.
Fuel supply below the level of the burner – When the fuel supply is more than eight feet below the level of the burner, a two-pipe fuel supply sys- tem is required. Depending on the fuel line diam- eter and horizontal and vertical length, the instal- lation may also require a two-stage pump.
6. RUN. The burner runs until the call for heat is sati- ﬁ ed. The burner is then sent to burner motor off delay, if applicable, or it is shut down and sent to standby.
ﬁ re and asphyxiation hazards. Do not attempt to start the burner when excess oil has accumulated in the appliance, the appliance is full of vapor, or when the combustion chamber is very hot.
Referring to the ﬁ gure below, slide the new blower wheel onto the shaft. Use a feeler gauge to set the wheel-to-motor gap, as shown below. (AF = 0.125 +1/64 inch, AFG = 0.030 +1/64 inch) Slide blower wheel toward motor until it con- tacts feeler gauge.
