I am currently @ work and had to manually draw out a quick schematic of my wiring. I AM NOT A LICENSED ELECTRICIAN, please take my design with a grain of salt Your transformer may be designed differently. OK, disclaimer over on with the schematic.
Thanks, this makes things a lot more clear. I am using the 2432 pid, which explains that/little piece of confusion.

Yes, I am using a standing pilot light with thermocouple. I liked the auto pilot, but found the parts expensive and I have yet to have an issue with my pilot light going out. If its that windy out to blow out my pilot, my burners will already be having a hell of a time to stay lit anyway.




Reason: oops

How deep are the screws you tapped into the bottom of the burner? I really like the mount job, but don't want to trash my burners

I drilled and tapped all the way into the cavity of the burner. Just use thread sealing compound (gas type)on the screws when you attach the pilot.

Not to hijack your thread but what psi are you using coming out of the propane tank and does it matter since it goes through the (in my case Marshall two stage) regulator anyway?

I am using a low pressure propane regulator as the honeywell valve cannot handle high pressure. I am not sure of the actual psi. But I am pretty sure its only about 1 psi

Closer to .5 psi or 11 inches water column.

I've been having a similar issue. currently I'm at work and have been searching far and wide for someone with the same issue. However, my burners don't light at all. No gas comes through the valves. I'm going to recheck my wiring with how you described it should be. Each valve is receiving 22 volts however. FYI the pilots work fine, but I know the pilots are a seperate line from the main inlet/outlet.
