    Forgive me if I am wrong but I can't imagine this would be legal unless you had a gas inspector come check out and sign off on conversion....

    You're generally not allowed to change fundamentals of an appliance like this....

    This is what your looking for, easily googled:

    HONEYWELL Y8610U4001 ELECTRONIC IGNITION SYSTEM KIT

    Medium skills to install and monometer required to set up gas valve properly. This is common and done all the time to upgrade to a IID system
