    Todd, You might try and reposition the thermocouple so it is in the flame more. A little tweak on the bracket may be all that is needed.

    I would also check your gas pressure with a Manometer . If you are on Propane , you want 11 inches of water column.
    ( less than 1/2 a pound )

    I would also check your piping size.

    It sounds like you may be drawing to much gas when the burner is lit, and you could be drawing down the pilot flame.

    Good Luck with your tractor problem [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    the pilot goes out when the burner goes out...but keeps on running till that point....i found an old thermo cou;le in the shed where the heater is so it had obviously been changed at least once b4????

    Todd, you may have a pressure issue due to a failing regulator.

    First, the regulator ( usually looking like a pair of pie plates massed together near the tank on the main supply pipe ) needs a vent to function properly. You may find that the critters have plugged it up. Look for an opening about 3/4" diameter with screen over it. It will probably say " Vent do not block " near it. If its dirty, scrape away the dirt and blow off the excess with air. That may allow the regulator to react better to varying demand.

    Now, if the vent is clean, you may have a weak regulator spring. That's not really something I'd mess with without pressure test gear. Your gas supply guy should be able to check that in about 1 minute !!!! Make sure he sets it under flow ( devices burning gas ). A lot of those guys set it up at static condition...usually not good enough.

    Good luck !!! Be safe.

    That second pic is the regulator. The vent is right in front...looks clean...Maybe time to do an adjustment. Whats the level of licquid in the tank. Are you just about empty? With this mornings cold, the pressure could be down.
