@ August 28, 2014 9:21 AM in Lead wiping

I remember my Dad teaching himself to wipe lead pipe. He used new wiping lead, that the supply house had. I also think he may have used some sulfur to bring out the dross. He also
used candle wax to sweeten the lead.
I also remember my Mother making his wiping clothes from pillow ticking.
He never did reuse old lead for wiping lead pipe joints.
I hope this helps

Hello
Unlike a boiler exhaust flue. the exhaust on a gasoline / LP engine, is not constant pressure, there are times when the exhaust is flowing backward. If you look at the location of O2 sensors on cars, the location is important. If you put your probe, closer to the exhaust port, you will get different data. You could look at the summit racing online catalog, for fuel air testing equipment, and more information.
Thanks

I would check the flue, also combustion air. Also you might check your incoming voltage, and make sure that there is not a floating neutral.
