Furnace- Nordyne MGHA 056 ABFC-05 has a conventional pilot

Customer Question

Furnace- Nordyne MGHA 056 ABFC-05 has a conventional pilot that keeps blowing out in windy conditions.
I would like to replace the pilot with an electronic igniter- Nordyne 902661A seems to be the universal replacement part.
How do I go about doing the retrofit? Is this a procedure best left for a professional?
I have reasonable mechanical skills but will not compromise safety if this is a concern.
It appears that the gas valve assy. may need to be removed to accomplish this?
Where will it tap into to power the igniter?

It is a pretty major project. You will have to replace pilot, ignitor, gas valve and control box to convert to electronic ignition.Below is a sample:
