In the old days, conversion was easier as there was less litigation at the drop of a hat for being your own field engineer whenever you made a change. Now repair companies have to follow factory guidelines for equipment and can't afford the lawsuits when customers insist on altering machines beyond the factory design.
The owner can do the work himself; but then, whether the unit is still made or not, he becomes the 'engineer' that has to confront the fire marshal, insurance company, and building code officials when it doesn't work out.
You might go ahead to find the correct orifices, gas valves and controls on your own; but any company that does it for you without factory approvals is just looking to find another field of work after losing everything to the lawyers.
