'71 overlander furnace igniter came loose

Guess these things always happen at the worst times. We were in SD, in the cold. When hubby went to "plunge" the igniter button on the furnace, it didn't plunge, but seemed to be completely disconnected from whatever/wherever it activates. We managed to get the pilot lite lit and continued to have heat. Will we have to remove the entire furnace to re-connect this rod? It seems to be long enough to fasten way back in. Is it difficult to remove the furnace in an AS? Don't you have to disconnect it from the duct plenum? If you've had some experiences with doing this, we'd sure like to hear from you.
