  1. I think that I found my bleeder screw. But it is impossible to turn in any direction. We have 3/4 of a tank of oil – now, so that isn’t the issue. What do I do? There is a small, loose screw above this valve that turns easily. I have primed till I am angry and no ignition. HELP!!

  2. found the bleeder screw but was hard to loosen let it drip for about five minutes. seems to have worked but need to know how long are you suppose to let it drip?

  3. My bleeder screw is not closing properly now. Will not completely stop flow of oil. Is that something I can remove and replace with new? Thanks in advance for the help anyone
