Hi Roy. If you see this, how big is the notch in the wheel well? As I cannot find this spacer I may need to go that route to mount mine next to the ice box.

And does anyone know where the gas valve is located and what it looks like. Id apprieciate it if anyone could help me out, thanks.
Look up a Robertshaw 710-20-something-series snap-action gas valve. They make a few in this series; one of them is for propane, the others can be converted. It is not a direct fit and requires gas-fitting experience. I believe this valve is the only one in existence that can be retrofitted to the old non-electric gravity furnaces (which I have, too!)
The Robertshaw 710-205 is $127 at Graingers in natural-gas version, they sell the propane conversion kit for ~$30 I think.

The gas valve is that thing at the bottom of your furnace, with the knobs and pilot controls on it. The temp-sensor bulbs seem to fail on all the old ones I've messed with and I can't find those seperately.
