So I am understanding the furnace is currently set up for LP and you want to go back to natural .Correct?

Expert:  airheatman replied 8 months ago.

Let me see what I can find. The furnace comes from factory as natural according to my spec sheets and they list the conversion kit to change to LP, but not from LP to Nat. Give me a few minutes to research.

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
Ok
Expert:  airheatman replied 8 months ago.

Since the furnace was originally shipped set up for natural, looks like the only kit available is to change to LP.

What we may have to do is order the orifices and gas valve spring separately rather than a kit.

If you would lie help doing that way, give me model on valve.Let me know if it has the Honeywell valve and model on valve

Ok I will have to go back to the site on Monday

AS for the gas valve, I am showing the VR8215A1289 as original.

Again it was shipped as natural with a kit to convert to LP so we might find an LP back to Nat kit or you may have to replace valve .
