pilotless furnace gas valve vent

Hi all

I am replacing the gas valve on my maytag pilotless furnace.

I took out my old honeywell VR8205S2288 and replaced with honeywell VR8205M2823

I'm realizing now that the old valve had a "vent" fitting, in place of the inlet pressure tap.

What's up with that?

What is your question ? That tap doesn't seem to affect what you are doing.

There should never be any kind of vent on a gas valve or regulator indoors unless said vent is piped to the outdoors.

or unless it is a high efficiency furnace and it has tubing going from the location on the GV marked vent to the burner box.

OP, you are wrong in that the vent is at the inlet pressure tap.

Pictures would do us wonders............

Looks like there was a similar thread here just a little while ago.
