Mr. Danpik: You sir, are not a jerk. You receive a full and complete pardon from jerkdom from now till infinity. (And you can let your wife know of said pardon as frequently as required. ; ) You answered an honest question completely, as one would expect, this being a do it yourself forum. You also saved me a bit of money, I didn't realize the ovens would have to be the same size. I had originally planned just replacing the elements with the gas tubes. So essentially, I will be placing the shell of my beautiful and irreplaceably stylish work of American 50's kitchen art over the inner workings of a modern propane stove. I'm sure I can retrofit the knobs, even if it means a little cutting and welding the get the proper ends and lengths correct. Thank you very much. Another step closer to having the coolest Antique Airstream in the Tri-state area.
I wrote a post explaining things... and realized my foolish error.
