I have a pretty nice Dayton 24,000 BTU overhead style natural gas heater. This is perfect for a 2 - 2.5 car garage. I bought it for my shop but ended up getting a much larger one because of the open design of my shop. $150.00 Randy 303-319-8976

any idea if this can be made to run on propane?

I think it can, it has a pretty generic gas valve in it. usually you just get a different size orifice for the gas valve. You may want to check online and see what the mfg's website says

Guys,

I'm out of town right now but will be back Thursday evening. I'll get the model number off of the data plate and post it up then.

It uses an external thermostat that you would mount on the wall, I just bought a new one for my heater for $11 at Lowe's. I can tell you it uses a 4" exhaust and has a 1/2" inlet for the gas pipe. It has a regular pilot light, it is not an electronic spark unit.

Thats your fault, I told you before: never go buy anything new until you check with me first :D

Randy did you ever get my pm regarding the heater. Send it to you right after you put it up for sale. LMK how the pecking order stands. Need to heat our 2four bay so I can work on wool and paint items etc.

Let me check, I'm back logged on PM's & emails. Once I get caught up I'll check the time stamps to see who gets first dibs.
