For those of you who are using the Intermittent Pilot Gas Valve Y8610U, what size should the pilot tubing be and what material should it be made of. I am finally connecting it up to control the temp of my HLT after all this time (I have had the valve for 4 months already). I am using Natural Gas.

Typical NG instalations use 1/4" od aluminum tubing, you can use soft copper tubing as an alternate if you can not find the aluminum tubing. Oil the threads on the brass fittings to make them easier to tighten up and soap all the joints after assembly to test for leaks.
