Question propane heater main burner go out after ignition

I have a Perfection/Schwank ASV730-RTL propane heater that I just replaced the combustion chamber. I can get the pilot light to work, but as soon as the main burner is engaged the flame blows itself out. It was working fine prior to the combustor change and no other changes were made.

Do I need a new control valve or what?

Are all of the burners pieces back in place EXACTLY as they were before? It almost sounds like the orifices for the burners are missing or sized incorrectly. Did you replace the burners?

The burner only had one bolt and the pipe connection to hook up.

I did not do anything to it just R&R.

The parts diagram does not show an orfice in the burner line.

It may be a part of the control valve.

Ok- I understand. You changed only the combustion chamber and are reusing the original gas valve and burner? How is the gas pressure? Has it changed somehow?

If it changed it would have to be that the regulator failed on the tank. I don't have a way to check it. I have called the propane supplier to come out and check the entire system for problems as a last chance fix before I order a new valve assembly for the heater.
