Stanley Brandon Mk3

Hi, I need some advice on the Ecoflam Minor1 Burners in my Stanley Cooker 100k.
Both burners failed last month. I had been having problems getting the cooker burner to ignite for some time. So having had no response from the guy who originally maintained our Stanley I set about finding the problem myself. I did a brief Stanley maintenance course when the system was installed in June 98. I downloaded an Ecoflam pdf which gave a drawing but minimal info. Both burners seemed to be in a poor state wrong screws fitted washers missing, perished gaskets, and the casings choked up with thick sludge. The drip tray was full and diesel had soaked into the insulation. I have cleaned and restored both burners to reasonable state. I have replaced both couplings, the cooker burner having worn completely. After cleaning and setting the electrodes I fired up both burners outside the cooker nozzle seemed very dry and intermittent so this I changed. I have had to make my own gasket seals which seem to do the job and there are finally no diesel leaks.
1. Can anyone give me some guidance on how to set the burn. I am producing a little soot and there is a slight puff of smoke at start up. Both burners seem to start ok even from cold which is a novelty. (I have a CO alarm in the kitchen near the cooker).
2. Should I invest in a flue gas analyser and can anyone recommend a suitable unit or kit.
3. Does anyone know where I can get replacement burners or are there any new like for like replacements.

Thanks in advance
