Hello again, the thermocouples are standard hardware items, all you need is the necessary length, the come in a kit that adapts to any pilot light assembly.

Just remove it and take it any larger hardware store for a match up, the threads on the nut that attaches it to the gas valve are *left hand threads. you will need a 3/8" open end wrench to remove it.

If you appreciate my input so far, and wish to continue with virtually no time limit, rate my work positively... rating will not increase your charges, we can go from there. The company only pays me if you rate positively, lacking that I can spend days with a customer at my own expense, without any compensation.
