For those interested, here is the link to the installation, 75% done, still need to fabricate some duct to feed front living area outlet.

1974 Overlander

Ran the furnace for an hours to test, bumped the heat up to check the thermostat. Works nice, very quiet as well! The original was way less than quiet! More like a dull roar.

That might cause too much air restriction and sail switch may not open. Worth watching . Then again it may work fine with the smaller furnace.

Ran it all morning, I think it will be fine, I am using a Tee to pass heat to the living area and back to the bedroom. Works slick, wish it was colder out to give it a good test, had it @ 80 with the Temp 55º outside. Starts and stops fine. The best thing is you can barely hear it in the bedroom!
Oh yeah, all the heat ducts are now hooked in, good flow to everywhere.

Just a quick note in the install of a furnace. Every install manual comes with a specific requirement for ducting area measured in square inches. this is a MINIMUM requiremet to prevent overheating of the unit.

Just be sure that the duct openings at the furnace meet or exceed this number and you're good to go!

Good Point, and yes they do
2 - 4" ducts exit the unit. I may add a 2" line to help flow to the tank warming lines.

As of now the front temp runs about 3 degrees warmer than in the rear, which is perfect for us!
