Probally the easyest convertion on the market. Where your gas line comes in the heater the line loops up over and down. There are two unions on this at the base of the loop. take these apart and their is a washer in one and you replace it with the Propane washer and put back together.

Cleaning the Thermal couple can work at times, however most times you will need to replace it. You may also be having an issue with the ignition control. You are in pretty deep now and it would seem like you are determined to save this heater, I would change them both.

Clean out the pilot assemby or replace it. It is probably blocked by rust and/or spiders and is not letting enough gas (if any) through.
