Default Southern Burner heater replacement parts?

Hi, I'm a grower with a hobby greenhouse in SC. I have a vented Southern Burner heater, and I just found out that the company is no longer in business. Has anyone figured out how to get replacement parts for these heaters? Mine is 11 years old and having some issues.
Alternatively, any suggestions on a gas-fired heater to replace my old Southern Burner?

No suggestions, but Welcome to OrchidBoard! I love Tolumnia. Feel free to post some pictures.

I'm replacing the Southern Burner heater with a Williams DV30 Direct Vent Gas Heaters from ACF Greenhouses, a more expensive and less greenhouse-adapted heater. But it's the best vented option I could find. I don't expect it to last the 11 years that the Southern Burner did, and it costs quite a bit more. :-(

Over the years, I went from a standard Modine heater to a Reznor with separated combustion (my favorite with the greatest efficiency, but also later without parts available), to one of those. It worked well, but I added a blower to extract more heat.

Default Southern Burner

The VS820A can be used to replace the VS821 gas valve BUT it has a higher heat (btu) output and I'm not at all sure how well that will work in the long term. The thermocouple is easily available, it's a standard 750 millivolt. The pilot is a bit hard to find. Search ebay for all these parts. The main body of the heater can be repaired with some effort. I have four of these heaters so it is worth the effort.
