lennox pilot adjustment

the valve is a Honeywell, model VR800 C 1190 -
the pilot was barely lit so I cleaned the orifice - thought I'd damaged the orifice by cleaning it - now I think it's been in need of cleaning for some time - everytime I'd have someone in to service the furnace they may have just turned up the adjustment on the pilot
so
any help in locating the pilot adjust is appreciated
the furnace is a Lennox G1203-110-3
the pilot lights, the flame is about 4 inches
How do I adjust it down?

thanks

found the adjustment - Honeywell has the installation manuals online
now I'll continue to search for the orifice

You did damage it. 4" pilot is mighty big. What did you clean it with, brace & bit. LOL

Wink

You only blow in and around the pilot venturi to clean them most of the time is all. The ## of the orifice you need should be right on the side of the one you have.

thanks, I called Anderson & Forrester - talked with Sid - he faxed a page of their catalogue to make sure I ordered the right orifice - when it came time to order he realized I'd never make a minimum order, cost on the part is $1.35 (local parts suppliers would sell the assembly for $80-90, said the orifice wasn't available or replaceable) so Sid is sending the orifice out as a sample - including his business card - asked if I could send a buck or two for the coffee fund. They were awesome people to deal with - thanks for the link - I'll certainly send them something for the coffee fund
