One Fuel line to two? Oil Heat

I am working on a oil  furnace that is installed in a trailor.  It caught on fire and the owner bought a used furnace.  Got the furnace in but now is where the problem comes in.  The old furnace has a two line fuel system and the new one has a one line system.  I looked up the fuel pump, (Suntec  #A2VA-7116) but tno help.  My heating book says something about a hex screw install to add a second line but just can't get fuel threw the bleeder.  Any help would be thankful

    There's a reason for the lack of information

    and that is, only a knowledgeable pro should be working on burners. 



    I'd hesitate to install a used furnasty anyway.... you don't know if there's a crack in the heat exchanger, which could let carbon monoxide into the house.



    If the owner insists on this used furnasty, get a pro in there to make sure the heat exchanger is intact, and properly tune the burner with a digital combustion analyzer. Simply setting it by eye is no good.

    Fuel lines:

    What you are doing is sort of like buying a clunker used car and finding that the brakes don't work. Then asking someone how you can just make the back ones work because that's the easiest to make work. You also have the emergency brake that might work.

    If you need to ask that question and need to look in a book for the answer, you have no business doing what you are doing. If you F-up, you won't be living there. If they or you put a CO detector in there and it started going off, they might remove the batteries. You installed it, you own the liabilities. Like DEAD.

    Times are hard. It may get better. Dead is forever.
