My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

This can cause combustion or pressure leaks swapping like this here.I recommend sticking to the correct parts and components so no issues occur as square usually wont seal up and operate properly with a round system.
