Hey lads
Having a intermittent fault with an st108 grant vortex 50-70.
Was locking out every morning.
I serviced, replaced nozzle. Adjusted oil pressures air pressures gave it a good service. Even replaced control box with one I had there.
Now the fault is only happening every 4-5 days,
Any ideas much appreciated before I go replacing anymore parts

Grant Vortex have Riello burners, not Bentones. How old is it?

I'd also agree with Martin, most likely to be a capacitor or a fuel pump issue, but I'd still wonder why a Bentone is on a Vortex.

Transformer or capacitor if it's a bentone. More often than not its the transformer. Pull the lead from the solenoid and fire it up a few times while looking into the blast tube. U should see the sparking stop and start. They're notorious for intermittent faults
