Unit has no air shutter, the kit has new orifice and instructions to flip the plunger inside the valve.

If the gas valve has the dimples on top and the LP/NG on the face of the valve at the 8 o'clock position and a hash mark at the 7 o'clock position.....

Change the orifice to the 54,then twist the top of the valve cover to align the LP with the hash mark.

the part they call an air shutter does not have the adjustment like a stove would, so you can't adjust the air/fuel mix. Many of these valves leak a small amount of gas when burner cycles off, sometimes you'll even have a tiny little flame.

The difference in the "kit" is the instruction sheet showing the "new" valve type and how to convert it.

It says to use orifice #54 for LP and #55 for Butane and DO NOT use the blocking pin.

Are these flare connections?
Flare connections do not use sealer.
