    Hi, I recently got a oil burning space heater given to me and was wondering how to hook it up/start it??

    I will be using this in a shed outside. The only information I could get off of it is:

    Model 89B
    35000 BTU
    Guelph Stove Company
    Te.........?? Laboratories

    This unit is about 2' x 2' x 3'. Any help would be great or direction on where to find a manual.

    I can take a picture if that would help.

    Is this an old unit? Is it vented? You'll want to be careful if it's an old stove. One of these nearly asphixiated me many years back. (though I think it was an old Sears unit) I woke up to a smoke filled room. The proper metering of oil is important and can get messed up if the unit is rusty.
