    Okay pros...I am neither a genius nor a moron, though right now not so sure. Long story short, pilot light is out and the directions on the tank don't line up with what I am seeing. I (hopefully) attatvhing some pics so u can se what I do. Heater is a Sate Indutries SBT 76-120. It says to follow the gas line to the sensor, and then open the door to light. There is no door and I cannot get to the pilot light area. What am I missing?

    Can't find that model number on State. But it sounds like a commercial 120,000 BTU. I would think it has electronic spark ignition?? Is there a diagnostic contol panel on the front.??

    Put some pics on photobucket.com
