I'd like suggestions about how to disassemble the catalytic housing from the attached base plate. It appears that the connection is a press fit.

    My intent is to disassemble the unit for engineering reasons NOT to use the unit, repair the unit, etc.

THESE DEVICES ARE NOT USER SERVICEABLE. They are dangerous enough without user intervention, that's why no reputable HVAC company will touch one. Contact Coleman or throw it away.

How do you unblock the gas jet. The flint on the heater is working but the gas is not flowing, although you can smell it when it is on?

If you are not mechanically inclined, DON'T TRY TO DISASSEMBLE, CLEAN, AND REASSEMBLE !!!!!!!!! CALL A PROFESSIONAL !!!!!!!! If you can do the above tasks to the heater, the jet mostly needs replacing. You'll need a cleaning kit with long handle wire brushes, and a can of computer cleaning compressed air. Make sure gas is turned off inside the house and outside the house if possible. CAREFULLY disassemble the heater. If any fittings get damaged, you have to replace the part. All the parts have to be fit perfectly!!! Use the wire brushes to clean the inside of tubes and use air can to blow inside of tubes.

How to connect radiators to the pipes

I am assuming that the radiators you want to hook up are designed for hot water? If so you will need to run two pipes to each radiator, one for supply water one for return. Radiators work well on a monoflow Tee installation ( I suggest you Google monoflow tee intstallation). Valve the supply side so you have some adjustment of water flow to regulate the amount of heat it will put out. From your boiler you will need to install a main supply pipe all the way around the perimeter of the house (in the basement). I suggest a 1" diameter copper pipe. Then you will need to locate your radiators. Install a supply tee in the 1" pipe and go up to your radiator with either 1/2" or 3/4" copper pipe. Install a valve in this line to regulate flow. Connect to the radiator using the correct fitting. On the return side, connect to the same diameter pipe as the supply and take that down to a monoflow tee installed in the 1" copper pipe. Make sure you face the tee correctly or you will not get flow thru the radiator. Because there are different methods to connect radiators, this is just a suggestion. Google the net for other suggestions, talk to a heating professional and study prior to installing or it will cost you money and aggravation.

How to test a used Rinnai 1004 furnace?

The fitting on the back of the unit is 1/2" MPT. Wouldn't suggest messing with it if you are not familiar with propane or natural gas. Make sure the unit is set up for LP if you are going to use a portable supply tank. These units are very reliable. Check all fittings with a diluted soap and water solution before turning on the unit. If it is not connected to it's venting system, you would have a forced induction source of ignition if you had a leak in your piping. These units should only be installed by a licensed plumber or gas fitter, one simple error could allow carbon monoxide (CO) into your house

Honeywell HZ517 Baseboard Heater

You can try to disassemble the heater and look for something wrong like a loose wire: in order to do so: Unplug the heater and let it cool completely before disassembling it. Remove the rear grille and the control knobs. Remove the front grille by unscrewing the fasteners on the back of the housing. Remove the front grille by lifting the control housing and pulling the front grille toward you. The motor, fan, and heating element are now accessible for testing and repair. Remove the thermostat from the control housing and disconnect the wires. Remove the heat control's mounting screws and clips to access and disconnect wires. Good luck
