Bleed screw question.


Hell, My furnice wont stay primed. Will go for days then it has all sorts of air in the line that needs to be bled out. While bleeding I notice there is a good drip from the thread area of the bleeder screw. Could this be the reason for loss of prime of is the culprit somwhere else? I have been told that it should not leak out of the threads while im priming it but wasnt sure. I tried getting a new bleeder screw but the hardware store told me that I had to buy a new pump for it. Could this actually be why I get air?

Single Line system
Inline Canister filter installed and new this season
New nozzle at start of season too.

Thanks for any help you can be!

Justin

Well, Not yet.

Im about to go out and take absolutley every conection there is apart and check to make sure the flare is PERFECT and re-tighten back up. See I have a piece of soft copper go from the tank to a hard copper piece that I soldered together- Back to another longer soft copper piece that goes to the OIL FURNACE.
Could I really have done a crappy solder job...doubtfull but possible. I think the issue may be in the transition from the hard copper to the soft (Under the house ) Wish me Luck

Back in the day we would use a vacuum pump to isolate the supply line. If the vacuum held we know the supply line was good.

Hope this helps you get your oil "fernice" back on line
