Heres a clue junior. You can set your burner up to exactly what specs it needs from new and it may never ignite or it may never burn properly. Those numbers (for the most part) dont mean chit unless you are doing this in a controlled environment (Labratory). As soon as you hook it up to your chimney it is completly different. Thats why they make combustion efficiency instruments. Bubba

I have a book that has a brazillion different ones listed but the best thing you can do is call a qualified oil burner serviceman and have him set it up.

In that case it will probably cost you 8 hours labor plus a truck charge and around 50-100 dollars in parts. On the bright side you should get the maximum efficency and reliabilty out of it.
There is much more to setting up a burner than adjusting the electrodes for a specific spray pattern. There has to be the proper amount of voltage present which can be in excess of 10,000vdc, a properly atomized fuel delivered at 100psi, the primary and secondary air must be set precisely, and further, the draft has to be set. All of these items are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg and require accurate measurements with specialized equipment.
The measurements require the knowledge to annalize and make corrections. Its not something the average untrained and ill equipped person can do and expect good results. The likely result is something from to a repeated nuisance trip to a whole house fire. The desired result is 10-12% co2 and 0 to 1 trace smoke. The smoke is the key but that is a different topic.
Bottom line is yeah, its going to cost you because youre in the boonies but its money well spent as long as you get a good tech. Its depends on how much value you place on safety, security and comfort.
