Turn brass elbow and main burner orifice counterclockwise to remove from
burner. The orifice is threaded into the
burner inlet. The elbow may have a
slight resistance since the orifice has
been sealed with RTV silicone. Use a
7/8" open end wrench or channel lock
pliers for elbow and orifice removal.
Remove existing main burner orifice from
brass elbow and replace with main burner
orifice supplied with conversion kit.
Note: The new main burner orifice will
have the number 132 stamped on it for
identification purposes. Apply a small
amount of thread sealant to the orifice
before tightening (see Figure 4). Sealant
must be resistant to Propane/LP gas.
Remove the burner by loosening the
two 5/16" hex mounting screws (see
Figure 3). Lift burner up and out.
Convert the pilot burner by changing out
the pilot orifice. Remove the compression nut and compression sleeve from
the pilot. Remove the pilot orifice from
inside the pilot barrel (see Figure 5). Replace with the pilot orifice supplied with
this kit. Note: The new pilot orifice has
the number 30 stamped on it for identification purposes.
Place open end of pilot orifice on top
of compression sleeve and carefully
slide up inside pilot burner. Tighten
compression nut (see Figure 5).
IMPORTANT: Be careful not to bend
or kink aluminum tubing during conversion. Make sure the compression sleeve
and pilot orifice are properly mated and
aligned before retightening the compression nut.
8.
Replace original burner with burner
supplied with kit. Attach with the two
5/16" hex mounting screws removed in
step 5.
9. Attach main burner orifice and brass
elbow assembly to burner. Place main
burner orifice into threaded end of
burner and turn clockwise to tighten
(see Figure 3). Align the brass elbow
with the flare fitting on the aluminum
tubing.
10. Reconnect the aluminum tube flare fitting onto the brass elbow (see Figure 3).
11. Reapply RTV silicone to seal area where
orifice passes through the bottom combustion chamber (see Figure 3).
