Congratulations on your eBay find. That is about a 30 year old 2327
torchbearer. It looks like it is mostly there, but it appears to be missin=
the shutter plate on one of the burners. I think you could fabricate one
from sheet metal. To determine the gas type, you will need to check the
orifice size. 5/64" for LP and 3/32" for Natural. I would hook it up and
see if it works.

Subject: question about burners for olympic 2327 fas kiln

I just purchased a used olympic 2327 updraft gas kiln on e-bay. The
body of the kiln is in great shape. The burner system plugs into a
kiln sitter on the kiln. I posted some pictures of the burner system
on my photobucket page.

Is it possible to tell by looking at these burners and connections if
they are set up for natural gas or propane? Or if I would be better
off putting different burners on this kiln?
