Thank you all.
I think I have enough information to press on.
I'm going to call the electrician back...and ask him why the orange line is underground...and then pose to him the issue as to how to rectify my pilot light needs. This just has too many "gotcha's" for me to worry about.
Please don't get me wrong...I am sincerely glad I asked...had I not, I may have done something not smart. And for that...I thank you and this forum.
