RE: Which way does this Intertherm Burner Target mount?...

On this item I would have a professional do the work. You are playing with fire if you know what I mean. Best to have it done correctly to prevent any problems. While the service man is there have them look over your furnace for any other problems.

RE: Spark ignition

There are no kits available that I know of to change over to spark ignition that would be approved for your mobile home furnace. If you furnace was originally available with spark ignition option then you could change it over but the cost of all the parts would make it prohibitive. Save your $$ and ...

There is a slight BTU difference between #2 fuel oil and #1 kero as you call it. The # 2 has more BTU content per gallon and depending upon the price is a better deal. No matter what fuel you use you should still have an annual tune up oil filter change ETC. 82% is a high number for an oil furnace a...
