ok, hopefully it has not been discontinued, but "Johnstone Supply" is a distributor of coleman, luxaire, york. all are about the same. May I ask why you are looking for the burner assembly? or are you looking for the heat exchanger?

The pilot light thermo tube went out this weekend. When I pulled the burner assembly out, I could tell that it was getting in rough shape. It was rusty and I had a good bit of rust scale come off of it when I changed the tube. I was able to get it working, but was wondering if a new assembly was available. The burner seems to be burning a little rich also. I could not adjust the flame mixture to a nice blue flame like it is supposed to be.

this is precisely why I ask this question. The symptoms you are giving me is that you "MAY" have a "breach" in the heat exchanger. This may be putting CO ( Carbon Monoxide ) into the home. I very strongly suggest that you have this checked out immediately with a certified technician in your area, AND most importantly HAVE A "WORKING" CARBON MONOXIDE DETECTOR present at all times in the home, If you do not have a detector, either purchase one today, or DO NOT USE THE FURNACE. CO is oderless, cannot be detected without a meter, and you can die!
