    CO = Carbon Monoxide? This heater must have been made for gas manufactured from coal right? The conversion to propane was a good idea. It's safer and easier to come by these days. The protective screen is a nice touch as well.

    Jump to Composition - Coal gas is a flammable gaseous fuel made from coal and supplied to the user via a piped distribution system. ... Coal gas contains a variety of calorific gases including hydrogen, carbon monoxide, methane and volatile hydrocarbons together with small quantities of non-calorific gases such as carbon dioxide and nitrogen.

    Ref: Wikipedia.

    Great Restoration/modification of a lovely looking heater.

    Best Regards,
    Kerophile.
