"Most" burner assemblies have a sliding circular plate (the vane I think it's called) at the point where the gas line fits to the burner casting. This slide to either open or close off the available air that get mixed into the fuel at the throat of the casting. You adjust this to get a even colored flame at the tip of the burner.
f the tips of the flame are yellow, combustion is incomplete.
I am not familar with this burner tho'.
