Since I want to heat a tank of water with this heater, I tried replacing the pot with a piece of exhaust pipe, drilled to allow the flame to be directed at the underside of the water tank. (pot and jack are just temp supports here)
Yesterdays pics were using a vacuum cleaner for air, I replaced the vac with a 12V air mattress inflater that I picked up for $5. I will continue to tweak the flame tube to optimize air/fuel mixture. It burns pretty well smoke free, now comes the supports for the water tank then the plumbing for the tub, we are hoping to get away with no pump, but if we do have to pump the water, we will use a 12V RV water pump powered by a PV panel.
