Natural Gas to Propane kit / spring strength


Which spring is the stongest? I would hate to asuume, but would think the natural gas is weaker and LP is stronger.
Thanks in advance for any replies. DK

I have never done a conversion, LP to natural gas or visa versa; but I do believe there are other things to consider such as orifice size just to name one. If you are doing a conversion make sure you understand exactly what you are doing.

I found this out. The lp spring is the stronger spring (also longer), to allow more spring pressure to gas diaphram/valve. I converted a white rodgers vavle from natural gas to propane last week. And yes, the burner orifices need changed as well. Thanks
