So I found the issue with my burner having yellow flames no matter how low I had the flow of propane. I'm missing the orifice that's needed to center the flow of propane and allow more air intake. So I was wondering if I'd be able to put JB Weld in the tip of the 1/8" fitting, and drilling it out with a #56 drill bit? Would the JB hold under constant pressure and cold from the propane?

Not sure in your application, but I have had nothing but good luck with JB weld. I had a Honda Civic that was almost literally held together by the stuff. I repaired a hole in my transmission case and another hole in my water jacket with it, and not a drop of tranny fluid or coolant ever leaked from the repairs. Don't ask me how the holes got there in the first place LOL.

Good luck, let us know how it works.
