Clogged Tigerloop SOS


Today i tried tipping my oil tank and propping it up for longer life of the oil we had, as basically ran out.
I think I may have made a hash of it, as the tiger loop appears to be clogged with what almost looks like crystalized oil. So I'm guessing the crap that sits in the bottom of the oil tank has made its way into the tiger loop, and is now blocking the oil from passing through the tiger loop.

Is it possible to clean out the tiger loop, or is it going to have to be a new one?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Cleaning Tiger Loop

I have cleaned them by removing the loop from the system pouring in kerosene, shake, empty, repeat several times. If that doesn't do it, you are likely looking at replacing the Tiger Loop. I wouldn't try any kind of solvent for fear it would damage the plastic. If that happened you could end up with a real mess. If it is not, the filter should be upstream of the loop.
