Here is a link to the ASCO Valve Page http://www.ascovalve.com/Common/PDFF...262_8263R1.pdf Looks like it is meant for low pressure gas < 2 PSI

Those valves look like they should work, port size, diaphragm material, direct lift style operation are compatible with the "Brutus" style control system. A word of caution though is when using solenoid valves without some type of safety system you need to make sure the pilot burner is as immune to blow out as possible. If you have a flame out and dont notice it things could get painfully exciting when the propane lights off from something else, especially in a closed garage, you would probably make the 6 o'clock news for a couple days.

If you dont purchase those solenoid valves the STC 160's work just as well

klaude, can those 160's be spark ignited through a controller? Any ideas on a decent cheap spark igniter?
