Default Pilot Light for 10 tip Jet Burner

I am using a 10 tip burner for a Brutus and I need to find a pilot light that fits. The pilot lights for the 23 tip don't fit the 10 and I have been looking all over for the right type. The orafice for the pilot light is 1/4" pipe.

Does anyone know of a good place to look for this type of pilot light?

Thanks in advance

I was having the same issue. I ended up running 1/4" copper tubing from a ball valve with a pilot assembly from honeywell at the end. has worked great for me. Here's a link to the pilot...http://www.pexsupply.com/Honeywell-Q...rner-4113000-p

Here is how member "KornDog" addressed the problem http://www.homebrewtalk.com/gallery/...l&ppuser=14861, put a 1/4" pipe plug in the pilot opening and tap it for a #8 bolt.

Thanks for the responses! In your setup, do you light the pilot manually or with an ignitor like "Korndog" uses?

The Q314 is the standing pilot flame, light by match pilot burner, the electric ignition model is the Q345A series http://www.pexsupply.com/Honeywell-Q...Gas-14525000-p. You might be able light this with a piezo lighter from a BBQ hooked to the ignition post, have not tried this so not sure if that would work like ignition module will.

I manually light mine. It stays lit as long as I'm mashing/heating up the HLT. I don't have a pilot on my BK burner though, I don't think it's needed.
