72 Airstream International Furnace parts

I have a 27' 1972 International with a Surban NT-32A furnace.

I believe I have a bad valve Bastrol Valve # G92SG-D-1 and have been told by Suburban that the furnace was obsolete in 1996.

They can no longer get parts.

I have tried cleaning the furnace but still having problems with valve.

The pilot will light, furnace will turn on.

If I light the pilot but the thermostat is set below current temp,
after about 60 sec I will get a small poof and pilot will blow out.

If I leave the cover off pilot access door I will see a small flame shoot about an inch out the door.

I have been told the gas valve is letting a little gas out.

Does anyone have a source of the Bastrol Valve or a replacement that will work on this furnace?

I have a CO dector and that is fine.

Mine does the same thing. If I leave the screw on cover off, light the pilot then turn the t-stat up, let the main burner come on for a few seconds, shut of via t-stat, put screw on cover back on,it seems to work OK after that.

The usual reason that furnace was replaced, is because of the same failure.
Your not likely to find a used valve that will be OK.

I need a jack handle for a 72 airstream. We are talking about the leveling jacks under the body of the unit. Just bought mine and I am pumped,always wanted one or two.

Are you talking leveling jacks or the stabilizers that are physically attached to the undercarriage of your trailer? If the latter, all you need is a socket wrench. You can also attach the socket to a drill for faster results.
