I put all new burners in my grill, it has not worked right since. In the process of trying to figure out how to slide the old burners out I loosened the main gas distribution tube under the front panel. I don't think I have gotten it to seal again properly, seems like I'm losing pressure. If I remove it completly, will I find that I need to apply a sealent like pipe dope where the tube meets each burner? I think I can smell gas when I turn the tank on, just at the end at the first burner position. That's my best guess at the moment. Thanks.

Yes you can fix it. Carefully remove the screws that hold the panel where the burner knobs are, There are 3 screws on each panel under the side shelf. There is another screw up underneath the face plate as well. Once the screws are out pull the face plate up and out so that all the tubes are disengaged. It should rest about 2 inches tilted back. Now remove the grates and burner covers and inspect the burner tubes. You will most likely find that spider webs or hornets have blocked off the gas flow to the burner. carefully clean every burner tube out and put everything back. You also may want to use a bit of sandpaper on the ignitor tip. Put everything back together and you should be good to go. It seems all Ducanes attract spiders on the burners...
You will need to unscrew the sides of the unit which houses the dials and ignition (This is connected to the burners). Pull it out, and they should come off rather easy if they are old. Slide them towards the front and out of the rear slots. When putting the new ones in, it is as simple as reversing what you did to take them out. You will need to go forward, into the holes, then toward the rear slots and lock them in place. You will then line up everything and screw the unit back into place. Much easier if you can get someone to help you for 10 minutes, but easily done by 1.
Remove the 2 grill wire cooking racks by lifting them out of the top of the grill, next lift out to remove the 3 heat deflector panels which exposes the 3 burner tubes. Remove the 4 screws located on the outside flanks (2 on each side) of the 5-knob control panel assembly - then gently slide the knob control assembly outward and away from the grill just about an inch or two. You can now remove the old burner tubes and replace them with the new units. Then simply slide the control assembly back into the grill frame and replace/tighten the 4 screws. Voila`
