our gas fired HW cold start boiler has sat idle all summer. in attempting to start it in advance of the heating season, i noticed the pilot lite was out. attempted to lite same and the pilot won't stay lit. held the gas valve(honeywell R8200A) pilot lighting button for 3 mins and it still goes out. boiler has both gas and power. anyone know if the thermocouple threads where the thermocouple tube threads into the gas valve loosen counterclockwise or clockwise? info appreciated.
