I agree with the oil man. We service about 2000 oil customers and we are 1 of 2 companies that service oil fired equipment. The other companies here send that kind of work our way. There is so much to know about oil burners you would be surprised. The wrong nozzle pattern will frighten you when it lights off. Wrong air fuel mixture can soot up a unit in a matter of hours. Stack switch or primary control, pump settings, filters, pump screens it is a fairly long list of things you need to know and have just to service one burner. The bacharach kit costs about $ and if you don't use it or a similar kit you are doing it wrong and many here do it wrong. Unless this type of work is going to expand for you I would beg it off on another. Beckett has very good courses on this if your interest grows. Good luck.
