the small end of the new pilot orifice into the barrel and thread
until tight with the allen wrench.
Line up the notch on pilot hood to the positioning tab on the
barrel receiver and snap back into position.
IMPORTANT: Be careful not to bend or kink the aluminum
tubing during conversion. Make sure the pilot hood and orifice
are properly mated and aligned after finishing this conversion.
Apply RTV silicone to orifice where it passes through the firebox bottom (see Figure 5, page 2).
Connect aluminum tube to elbow fitting and tighten flare fitting. Use a 3/4" open end wrench.
