Pilot light question

I have a PD 75AA0111 Propane Space Heater in my shop; do I manually light the pilot with I lighter while holding down the reset button down and the dial set to pilot, until the thermo-couple heats to the proper temp?
My unit looks light this one above...

Welcome to the forums.

If the valve has a pilot position on it then there will be a pilot button to hold in for lighting.
You have the right idea.

Excellent, I was looking (and listening) for the click of the ignitor, like the one on my gas fireplace. I think I will purge the gas line, wait a while for the gas to dissipate then light the pilot the "old fashion way", with a lighter.
Thank you very much, will let you know how I make out.

If the gas has been off for a while it could take 5-10 minutes to purge thru the pilot line.
