I'm wanting to take a propane heater and convert it to natural gas and use it in my work shop. my question is " Do I need a pressure value or regulator to hook it up? " Thanks So Much!

at very least you need to adjust the regulator and change the orfice..
is there a manufacturer's website with instructions?
some regulators are easy to convert and some are not..
the orfice will be sized according to how many BTU you want out of the heater.
there is also an air adjustment for the air going to the orfice.
you might have to send for a kit to do this. it will have the necessary parts and instructions..
