Test the moisture meter on your palm. should get low 30s.
For petes sake remove the turniquet and let the blood flow back into your hand.
QP (quarry processed) stone. dig about 3 inches down. Add about 4 inches of stone and level.
Don't forget BWS is drying Ash. Oak takes at least two years in single rows in my yard, in the sun.
It happened with the old suction line, new suction line, old valve, new valve, old pump, new pump.

As long as your fuel is seasoned correctly < 25% MC you really don't need to worry about creosote as long as you bring the first fire up to cruising...
In some parts of the world I think thats the primary fuel for home cooking.
Bingo, Oak cut and covered for a yr is only half seasoned in my world. That wood is probably still 35% moisture content.
It happens to me at least once per year. I respond to free firewood and its just sitting there stacked and split.
