I'm hoping that someone who has completed a similar project or has HVAC experience may be able to help.
I'm in the finishing stages of a B3 1100/Brutus hybrid. I decided to go with the ranco controller and honeywell gas control valve combination More Beer uses, but I'm having trouble getting the gas control valve and pilot burner to work.
I'm running 120v through a 24v transformer.
That goes into a 24v Ranco controller and then to the wiring harness for the Honeywell valve.
From the harness, I've got the corresponding wires running to the control valve.
Two grounds then go from the control valve to the pilot burner bracket, which is attached to the frame.
The Ranco has power, and I've used a voltage meter to make sure I've got power at the 24v line in the harness. Even so, when the Ranco temperature it set to "heat" and the desired temp is set above the current temp, nothing happens.
Right now, I'm just trying to get the pilot burner igniter to spark. I don't want to introduce propane until I have a spark. Any ideas? I can post pictures of any additional wiring or parts if needed.
Thanks in advance for your help.
