If we're both on the same page, it's a common brass fitting available at Home Depot or your favorite (well stocked) plumbing supply. Pipe threads going into the valve, and flare on the other side.

1/4" male pipe by 3/8" flare, elbow. Could be 1/4" flair.


Buy both and bring the wrong one back or take the old one with you.


What's wrong with that one ?

Thanks, I believe it is also 1/4" flair as I plugged it with a 1/4" nut.

There may not be anything wrong with it, its just a bitch to get out of the old gas valve and I prefer to work with all new fittings when replacing the valve if I can.

The hose connection on my TT was leaking at the threads. Tried to tighten it up, and re-tested it with soapy water and it still leaked, so I put some pipe dope on the threads, and now no more leak.

New valve is assembled and im going to install it tomorrow.

I didnt realize the oriface could fall out of the burner tube until just now when i reqd the warning that came with the valve so im hoping thats actually still in the burner tube or I could be buying a new burner tube tomorrow also. Always something lol

Don't forget that valve is likely a generic. Unless things have changed since I worked on them, the only orifice (or jet) would be the one on the end of the line inserted into the burner tube. It's brass, and visible in the window of that burner tube.
