According to Repairclinic.com the NG orifices are no longer available.
The LP orifices are smaller diameter than NG.
A machine shop could drill out the opening to NG specs found in the tech manual on this site.

Sears appears to have at least one of the spuds, a WB28K27. Maybe they can still get them. I can't find them anywhere else. Much as I dislike Sears, they might have to do...

Usually the installer will tape the old orifices on the back of the range for future use.
