Question Furnace Gas Valve Replacement

My 1988 Snyder General furnace's pilot won't stay lit. I replaced the thermocouple, but, that didn't help. Called service man. He said the gas valve needs replaced. Through him it will cost >450! So he mentioned replacing the whole furnace go figure. Anyway, to my question...it has a 36C03 type 245 gas valve, can I replace it with a 36C03 type 333??
thanks in advance

Seems like a standard replacement gas valve.

Do you know how to set the pressure? If no, I would call your Gas co after you do install and have them check the input, which translates to clocking the meter and checking the pressure.

thanks for the reply mbk3. That's what I figured with the replacement. And, no, I don't know how to check the input. I will have somebody come in to check this. thanks again
