stainless steel gas supply line connector
can be assembled to the cooktop now or
after the cooktop is installed in the cutout.
To assemble now, stand the cooktop on its
side or back surface and complete this
part of the pressure regulator/gas line
To connect the flexible, stainless steel
connector to the pressure regulator
requires a 1/2" nipple.
Install the pressure regulator with the
arrow pointing up toward the bottom of the
burner box and in a position where you
can reach the regulator cap.
