Weeden 14 Burner

Most No. 14 Weeden engines that are available today are missing the stock 3 wick burner that was supplied with them from the factory. I had some 3/4" X 1 1/2" rectangular tubing doing nothing so decided to make a burner, the tank is taller and narrower than the original burner but the capacity works out to nearly the same.

I cut both ends of the tubing 3/4" from the end through the top and sides but stopped at the bottom, just scoring it for the bend. I then drilled holes to fit 3/8" ID tubing I had on hand. A small hole was also drilled to be tapped later for the filler plug.

Three 1/2" lengths of the 3/8" ID tubing were cut and flat iron scraps were used to position them 1/4" above the top of the tank.

The tubes were brazed in, then the ends were bent into position and brazed. A handle was then brazed to the tank, the filler hole was redrilled and tapped for a 1/4 - 32 blanking plug.

Brazing is not pretty, had to do it with propane torch, reminds me of when I was a kid and my father commenting on some of my projects, " That is nice but why did you let the crows crap on it?"

The tank was painted with flat black heat resistant paint and 1/16" vent hole was drilled in the blanking plug. Wick material is for patio lamps from dollar store.
