1. Open lower louver panel. This allows access below firebox to gas line con­nections and gas control valve.

3. 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.
4. Remove existing main burner orifice from brass elbow and replace with main burner orifice supplied with conversion kit.
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.
5. Remove the burner by loosening the two 5/16" hex mounting screws (see Figure 3). Lift burner up and out.
6. 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.
The new pilot orifice has the number 30 stamped on it for identi­fication purposes.
7. Place open end of pilot orifice on top of compression sleeve and carefully slide up inside pilot burner. Tighten compression nut (see Figure 5).
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 R TV silicone to seal area where orifice passes through the bottom com­bustion chamber (see Figure 3).
