Thanks everyone for your help, cleaning out the boost manifold returned the T5 to it's lively self. I should have noticed this long ago but the flames just gradually got lazier and lazier until there was no indication of air coming in the front of the heater. After cleaning, the flames have picked back up. Thanks again everyone for your input, my guess is that the heater has been burning dirty for a couple of months and it still needs the cleaning as well.
I'm surprised that made such a difference. Our boost manifold has been closed off for a couple years now. It has to be packed with ash. I would still add few feet of pipe this summer and a roof brace. You will notice the difference in a more willing burn and better secondary combustion.
