You have a older style transformer and motor. They are the better kind then the new electric versions. I would crack the pump, clean and or replace the filter. Then pull the nozzle assembly, replace the nozzle, clean up the electrodes and head with carb cleaner. Get the nozzle adjustment gauge or the plastic so brain orange gauge. The plastic gauge is expensive for a piece of plastic and breaks easy, do gentle handles are needed. Finally replace the gasket.

I recommend a Beckett t501 or a NOSguage if you are not used to setting up a burner.

Also, check out Beckett training on YouTube.
