Thanks guys, the ignition transformer was replaced yesterday. Still having trouble. I haven't heard any rumbling or seen any black smoke from the power vent. It runs and sounds great when it's firing.

Thanks Shane, you're right. I stopped and picked up both a new pressure switch and new Well-X-Trol this morning. Rationally I couldn't see that there would be a problem on the air side of the tank...

As it worked out I didn't need to cut or re-flare the existing tubing. There was enough play in it that I could re-bend it to fit. Everything bled out OK and I don't see any leaks yet. Thanks for...
