Default torpedo heater repair

Good fuel???

If you have a strong repeating spark and good fuel vapor there is
no way for it not to ignite.

You might be spitting liquid fuel or not getting a real spark in
the right place. Grainger's has rebuild kits for virtually any
torpedo ever made. The kits provide spark plug, pressure creating
disk, photo eye, etc for about $60. Money well spent or buy a new
one.
