Hi David, Turn off propane and T'stat, remove the exhaust tube, take the propane line loose, take the igniter wire(red)loose and one quick disconnect wire (both on propane line side), remove 3 - 4 screws from around the exhaust hole area that holds the burner in and one on the round edge, pull out the burner, you may have to push the propane line out of the way, be careful not to damage the flare on the tubing. Remove and replace the electrode/igniter. The gap is 1/8 inch from the tip of electrode to the burner face and between the curved tip electrode and straight one. Be careful not to crack the porcelain insulators when adjusting. Reverse all this to install. Leak check the propane line with soapy water before starting the furnace. Good luck
