Olsen Gas furnace 1971

Model # HAS130 I had this furnace replaced with a newer one and now that I find it is in such good shape, I am putting it in another out-building on my property.

The regulator has two copper lines comming from it and they both have a sensor style end on them. One is the thermocouple for the pilot light. What is the other one for? The sensor end of it is situated slightly lower than the pilot light and between two of the burners. I was not the person who removed it from the house and I would like to know how far this sensor should be positioned inward? It is held in position by a small clamp and a screw. If I know what its function is ,I can probably set it by trial and error. Thanks to anyone who can answer this for me.

It's probably the vent for the regulator. If so, it's collecting the small amount of gas released when the regulator adjusts and directing it to be burned in the pilot flame.

Thanks a lot Seattle. That makes sense because it is real close to the pilot flame. That removes any worries I had about it. Appreciated. It's been minus 30C for 3 days and tomorrow I stuff the chimmney on and let er rip! 130,000 BTUs and only 6400 cu ft of space - - should be toasty.
