    I need a pilot orifice for our 10 year old Superior NG fireplace. It looks like item "C" in the attached picture. Any tips where I can obtain one? (The gas valve is a S I T 820 Nova).

    nice picture, hehe

    yes we have them, or did when we took that pic....

    what size do you need?

    btw, c isn't a sit made part even though the valve might be....

    Yea, thanks for the picture. The stove installation instructions state .091.

    Yeah that letter C is Robertshaw or PSE pilot orifice.

    E would be what is found in the "spaceship" style SIT pilots.

    You're correct, .091 refers to the main burner. The book doesn't indicate what size the pilot orifice is. And unfortunately the Superior Fireplace Company appears to be long gone.

    Hey Paul, what is the exact model and serial number?
    superior is now owned by lennox, so if i dont have the old specs(i have a ton of superior info, hard copy old files etc.), they can get them for me.
    worst case, you buy a couple and hope one of them is correct, or close enough that the pilot adj on the valve will make up the difference

    I have only seen that C style orifice in 4 different hole sizes, 2 for LP and 2 for NG. They were very close, so prob either would do the job.

    Hey guys,
    Thanks for your help on this. I hope you had more luck with the fish than I've had with this fireplace.

    I have a .21 natural gas spud that will probably work. You are welcome to try it. If you want it, let me know where to send it.

    Hey Paul,

    Sorry it took me so long to respond. I taped the spud to a piece of paper and put it in an envelope. I am sending it out today in the mail. Don't worry about any money. It only cost me a stamp and I would rather someone have the part that it will do some good.

    I think my orifice looks like "E" in this picture. (Superior DT-500CMN with the "spaceship" pilot).
    I have removed the pilot hood (spaceship), but, how do you get the orifice out? Do I need to unscrew the pilot gas line from the bottom of the pilot assembly??

    Thanks
