Is an orifice drill bit the same as a numbered bit?
Are most orifice spuds similar in physical size and threads with the main difference being the actual size of the hole?
I'm thinking it would be easier to find an orifice with a similar BTU rating (hole size) and install it. But, that assumes the threads are the same.
I still wonder why I have to buy an assembly instead of just the spud. Its only for the biggest burner and not all of them. It seems odd, like there was a design flaw that they're trying to fix.
