A long time ago a neighbor converted the permanently-installed grill on 
his porch from LP to N.G. Himself. The house didn't go boom so I assume 
he did it okay. Everything I've ever heard is that it's just a jet 
swap--our grill came with two screw-in 'regulators' (jets, I 
assume)--depending on which fuel you used, you put in the appropriate 
one. But having said that...

That's probably the idea I'd be afraid of. This'd be one of those things 
I'd be dead-nuts certain about before I did it. I'm sure if you couldn't 
buy the part you could have one machined up...but the consequences if it 
was wrong plus the cost and hassle of having that part machined...  I'd 
probably just shop for a new heater.
