At least you know that the present situation results in a rumble (rattle) of the appliance. This is usually caused by the flame pulsing as fuel rapidly has insufficient air, and then has enough. Gas burners and oil burners do not have the same flame shapes and patterns. Your problem is the result of an unsupervised experiment in combustion - that is, noone has tuned the burner to the chamber, as is done before appliances can leave the factory. You are asking for extensive experimental engineering work to create a satisfactory appliance. I suggest the installation of a pre-engineered appliance as a solution to an annoying problem. And you get higher efficiency.
