Natural gas to propane stove conversion

Stove conversion parts

We appreciated everyone's educated feedback about our natural-gas-to-propane stove-conversion project.

It turns out the stove's previous owner wasn't as well informed.

Using the manual, we flipped the pressure regulator from natural gas to propane.  But when we removed the orifices, we discovered that the burners had already been converted over.  ("L" on the orifice refers to LP, commonly known as propane.)

Perhaps the improper conversion is why the stove was being sold cheap?
