With the orifice you can drill them out to the correct size. If you know a plumber or a HVAC person they should have a set of thumb drills and a sizing chart. They just need to match the size of the orifice to the pressure and output btu.
Also two things that you need to keep in mind about the Honeywell valve you speck is that it also has a reg in it. They come from the factory set at 3.5" WC. I would recommend that you you adjust it so you are seeing 7" WC after the valve. Did the orifice have any info on it or included with it on or in the package? If it lists a recommended WC go with that. The second thing you need to remember about the valve is that it will come set-up from the factory for Natural gas you need to install the LP spring and cap.
Thanks for the info.
I already installed the LP spring and cap on the honeywell valves. I have yet to try them. What I did try was the non controlled boil kettle burner. This is where I have the low and then no flame. I don't have the right set of fittings on hand to take the needle valve out of the plumbing. Perhaps I'll get an adapter and see what happens. For the time being, if I open the needle valve all the way, will it provide enough flow?
