This heater has been in my father in laws garage for many years and works great but he has recently passed and could use some assistance with some lighting instructions.
It uses furnace oil from a 200 gal tank. I'm assuming I just turn on the fuel(2nd pic) and light the oil inside the front door?
I would appreciate some help so I don't burn the garage down.

Thanks, I've been searching for a while but there isn't much info out there. I thought it was model 803 but my search on that came up empty. My daughter is going to look at the model again for me.

It's a model 876. Murff sent me one for 444 & 844 so I'm sure it should be close enough.
Thanks again

if those are oil burners we just turned the knob a little till there is some in the burner bottom.  then toss in a twist of lit paper. we used toilet paper but feel free to experiment
