Thanks.

why would you want to convert?
the Payne three wire ingitor/sensors arent that expensive and when you make conversions like that you are assuming alot of liability. you assume the same liability as the manufacturer in most cases.

Simple. The 3 wire pilot burners have become extremely unreliable.
Every one I've replaced, I've had to go back within a year and replace it again. I've never had that problem until about 3 or 4 years ago. I don't care that the supplier gives me a warranty replacement. I'm losing a fortune in fuel and unbillable time.
Thanks for your input.

Switch it around

I'd explain to the customer that the parts are now unreliable and it will be a service call from now on.

Make a recommendation for a new furnace.
