Converting NG grill back to propane

I got a Charbroil 4 burner grill, for free, from a neighbor. I cleaned it up and it appears to be in very good shape. The problem is it was converted to Natural gas. I would like to convert it back to propane but I don't have the original orifices or regulator. Does anyone know of a source for these parts and how to determine the correct sizes?


I would rather have a tool I don't need, than need a tool I don't have.

Garage
home depot has a pretty good selection of parts as does Ace
often the grills come with both orifice so if you find the manual online it may have the part number or the size.

I have been all over Charbroils website, looked at the parts available for this grill, no orifices. To convert it to NG, the instructions say to replace the regulator and hose, remove the orifices (and keep them to convert back) and change the faceplates on the valves. The grill didn't come with any of the propane stuff.
Seems the home improvement stores and the grill parts sites, online, only sell the parts to convert to NG. No mention of propane orifice size, not even in the manual.

Propane regulators are pretty much universal and can be had at any store.
The orifices can be had on the charbroil website. If you contact them, they may be able get you the proper one for your grill. otherwise, you will either have them drill out the universal one or do it yourself.
