out of people found this instruction helpful

THERE WERE 3 ? TYPES OF BLACK BURNER DISHES AND 3 TYPES OF BURNER CAPS. THE INFORMATION I COLLECTED DID NOT HINT ABOUT THE DIFFERENT SIZES. WE SENT BACK 2 CAPS FOR THE PROPER ONES. MEANTIME 3 OF THE DISHES WERE ON BACKORDER. I INSTALLED THE ONE DISH I HAD. LATER THE 3 BACKORDER DISHES ARRIVED. I BEGAN TO INSTALL THEM WHEN I DISCOVERED I NEEDEED MORE THAN ONE SIZE. I AM A RETIRED AEROSPACE ENGINEER. I HAD TO USE MY FILE AND HAMMER TO FIT EXPERIENCES TO MAKE UP FOR MY PARTS ORDERING DEFICIENCY. THE NEW DISHES, MOUNTING HOLES, WERE DIFFERENT THAN THE ONE I HAD PREVIOUSLY INSTALLED . SO IN ORDER NOT TO RETURN THEM AND WAIT AN ADDITIONAL FEW WEEKS , I FILED THE MOUNTING HOLES SUFFICIENT TO BE ABLE TO MOUNT THEM. THEN I PUT THE NEXT PART ON AND DISCOVERED THAT IT DID NOT FIT THE NEW LOCATION OF THE IGNITER . I FILED THE APPROX 1/2" DIA HOLE FROM ROUND TO A "D"CONFIGURATION ON 3 PARTS , THAT ALLOWED THE IGNITER TO FUNCTION IN TWO OF THE NEW LOCATIONS . THE FOURTH AND SMALLEST BURNER REQUIRED AN ADDITIONAL 1/4" SPACER TO MOVE THE GAS SUPPLY RISER CLOSER TOTHE IGNITER. THE BURNERS ARE ALL WORKING AS NEW. NO FIRE HAZARDS.
MY WIFE DOES NOT KNOW THE GOOFS I MADE. I HAD TO USE SOME INVENTIVE METHODS AND I'M STILL HER HERO.
I WOULD CAUTION ALL DI IT YOURSELF PEOPLE TO BECOME VERY FAMILIAR WITH THE PARTS THEY NEED. THEY MAY ALL LOOK THE SAME TO THE NOVICE BUT THERE ARE SLIGHT DIFFERENCES THAT SHOULD REQUIRE REPLACEMENT AND COULD TAKE AWAY YOUR HERO STATUS.
