    Default Turbo Ten Manual

    I had a good read of the manual & it specifies the fitment of the flu saying straight section of the pipes must face upwards which is quite informative saying that the inner stainless pipe must be 50mm above the rest of the triple flu setup before you fit the hat. Also states that the slow burn lever on the right side towards the front which goes down to the air intake ports must have a min of 2.5 mm clearance (preferable 3 mm) away from blocking off the pipes in the upright slowest position of the control lever.
    Perhaps i can make a hard copy of the manual & get it to you if your still on the Central Coast, failing that i may be able to upload it to this forum so that everyone interested in setting up these heaters can see it.

    It also has an insert page that explains how to lubricate the slide mechanism on the damper lever which prevents the door from being opened in slow burn.

    Could you upload the manual? I am servicing mine atm. Would also greatly appreciate a photo of the handle showing the mechanism that keeps the door shut. Mine is missing the catch and I want to make one - new is over $230 AUD.

    I have an old style tiled (not fan assisted) turbo and I can photograph the door catch. It is simple. There is another interlock catch that latches the door when the chimney damper is closed. Its a pain in the ... and unnecessary.
    This is my first post and I can't see how to upload a photo

    I'm happy with my turbo 10. This winter I am using last year's gum tree for fuel and it's been great.
    I broke the bakelite handle for the air inlet but made one from a door knob and it works perfectly

    Hi,

    Sorry to hear about Gordon.

    I just so happened to stumble back onto this thread after more than 10 years. I still have my Turbo10. In fact, it is going as I write this. It has performed tirelessly for the last 38 years and is great shape.

    I have spent some time scanning the documents that I have from 1985, a brochure, the operating manual and the installation manual. When you open the manuals, turn the page to the right 90 degrees and they will be a lot easier to read.

    Hope that helps.
