iwanttofixit is on a distinguished road

I think I may have found the problem. Talked to a friend about how to go about it. Pulled it all apart, took out the burner/pilot/thermocouple assembly. The thermocouple was pulled down about 3/8" in the bracket, so it wasn't in the pilot flame like it should've been, I guess. Also found that the thermocouple line was less than hand tight in the gas valve! Cleaned it all up really good, cleaned the fitting holes in the gas valve, put it all back together, and the pilot light burned strong after only holding the valve button 30 seconds. Previously was holding it 90 to 150 seconds and the pilot would still not stay lit very well. We'll see over the next few days. Thanks.
