I wish I could read that entire 'Operating Instructions' placard in the second picture. Looks to me like you turn and depress knob B and hold it down, which allows gas into the valve. Then is E an ignitor button of some sort? Press that baby repeatedly until it lights. First thing I'd do, though, is get out the shop vac and get after all that dirt in there. I don't know what all's in there, but some of it looks to me like it could burn. You could end up like Mrs. O'Leary and start the Great Shecago Fire. That's no good. Alright - any spelling errors, typos or bad grammar other than the intended one? Nope, I think I'm okay.
