I just purchased a used Whirlpool natural gas range.  It is set for natural gas, i have good gas pressure and there is not enough gas pressure coming out of the "eyes" to light the stove.  If I light it manually, it barely lights. The front eyes won't even light, they suck back in and pop.  The oven lights but has such a small flame.

You would need to measure pressure with a manometer. This page is for gas dryers but the principles, pressures, and methods of measurement are the same as for gas ranges==> http://fixitnow.com/wp/2010/08/22/gas-supply-plumbing-requirements-for-gas-dryers/
