Hi Ch3vron, kufo and coopervid, I would like to thank you very much for taking the time to read my post and help solve my long and ongoing issue. I have subsequently obtained said burner and have already shown it to do what my old ones didn't. I would like to somehow return the favour--please let me know how. I only hope my doing something for others with your patience and generosity in mind will keep this perpetual favour going, and that when Ch3vron, kufo and coopervid have someone do a random act of kindness it may have stemmed from themselves. Be well and stay healthy. Rich!
