Low flame on pilot I just installed a old Moore gas space heater in my garage/shop. Having a problem with a low flame on the pilot only about 3/8 " flame not enough to keep thermolcupling hot or stay on. Can get the heater to work by heating thermolcupling with my torch . is there any way of adjusting the pilot higher from the gas valve.

You have the wrong pilot orifice.

There is a way to adjust the pilot. It will be stamped as "Pilot Adj." on th valve body.

But I am betting you put an LP orifice in a Nat Gas system.
