It sounds like you may have a dirty pilot tube or a weak pressure regulator. I would try blowing out the pilot tube to make sure it is clear and if that does not work then replace the regulator.

Won't light no gas


Is the gas supply valve open? the handle will be perpendicular the the pipe if it is on. Is your supply natural gas or LP gas. If LP make sure the tank is supplied. Any LP supplier will be able to check it out. By law they will have to check for leaks before filling the tank.

Dayton is primarily sold by www.Grainger.com . You must purchase a re-jetting kit (Natural Gas Valve) from them to accomplish this.

Pilot lights but heater does notstart burning it sounds like everythings starting up its about 15 years old worked fine then one night smelled some gas shut it off next day would not work its propane


its most likely dirt/rust in your burner assy , but as its 15 year old and propane do your self a favour and get it inspected by a registered gas/propane engineer .
ive witnessed propane explosions at first hand and they are scary

Switch a natural gas furnace over to lp


WW Granger is the biggest supplier I know of for dayton. Consult them for information and if its still available. 
In lue of this find the oldest repair man you trust and ask him if he knowes anything about them. I know I could help if I could see what you have and had some more questions answered. Pilot ignition? Gas valve model? Does it have a regulator in the gas valve? Then you have to find a kit to block open the regulator. Then change the orfices to correct size or solder and redrill the old ones. Then maybe adjust the combustion air, and you may have to change the pilot burner orfice and adjust it. 
After that you can fill the LP tank.
Hope this helps IF so please grade me accordingly and Good Luck.
