    I did have heat the entire time I had the problem with short cycling. The only time I personally hit the reset was after I changed the filter. Once I touched the filter I couldn't get the burner to run continuously.By then I knew oil flow was the problem. If this occurs again, I assume I can take my air hose to the oil line to blow it out. Right?

    No, not right. If it happens again & probably if it does not, the lines & maybe the tank need replacing. That sludge is coming from somewhere, probably the tank.
    Work is for people who don't know how to fish.

    .

    you might have yourself an even bigger problem if you get your compressor and you use too much pressure --anyway if your tank is over 30 years indoors its time to clean it-have it tested, replace the valve,lines, pitch the tank--if underground that age its time to remove it
