The Clarion has been carrying it's own weight down to 0 oat. Then the WM has to help. Had a small puff back this morning(swoosh).
Tried to wake it up to fast. First attempt a real low idle. Had it at
151 barrel top, stack 108 for 24 hrs. Should be able to get lower
while still in base mode. Still sipping coal at 24% overdrive, 30%
is to much.

Left the Clarion burn out yesterday, to clean out what ever was in base chamber. It burned 63 hours on about 50 lbs of black rocks.
At 200 deg in cruise mode, needed a little heat in the mornings.

Found around 1/8 to 3/16 inch ash in base chamber, a little deeper under back pipe. Less than I was expecting.
Next time to do a clean out I'm not going to shut it down. Just stick crevis tool from shop vac in, 3 minutes later done.

63 hrs MB? Did you add anything to it, or shake a little ash out of it once or twice? Sounds like you've got it tuned in nicely. Will you need to re-fire it again this season? Mine came back to life a couple weeks ago, and am milking it along another day or two. Then I'll be out...again...for the 3rd time these past few weeks. It was 70° yesterday, and today, back down to 40. (highs).

Nice job Artie ! I hope you're right on the 6 weeks, I just picked up 30 bags today just in case.
