Whirlpool dryer fittings to revert back to natural gas

Hi! We just received a Whirlpool dryer that had previously been used with LP, but we would like to use with NG. I need to figure out which parts to order and cannot seem to find a clear answer.

Model # is WGD4800BQ2. I've taken apart the dryer and there is a metal cap covering a plastic plug that is screwed in, with a spring beneath it. The part that this is located on also has a setting marked LP and NG with a hash mark, so I believe I need to set it to the NG mark obviously. But I don't know if I need to order a "limiter replacement" to screw into this hole to replace the plastic plug?

And I'm not sure what orifice I need on the other end. I came across these parts online but since they're not cheap I don't want to order them if they are incorrect or not needed:
Whirlpool 694424 Limiter Replacement
Whirlpool 234826 Natural Gas Orifice

Can anyone provide some specifics?

I figured it out on my own so for reference it was orifice 234826 that I needed to use to return to NG use. Then I just turned the part of the gas valve back to ng from lp. Hooked up and working great.
