Removing International Furnace from 1965 Safari

Hi there

Any ideas on how to remove an International furnace from a 1965 Safari. I dont think it's original but possibly replaced early on - as there seems to be a larger whole cut through the skin - possibly because it was too big to get in. I have removed the electrics, gasline, exterior vent and all the internal rivets I can see/access and would love to be able to remove it from inside so I dont have to remove any exterior rivets. The furnace moves an inch or two but it wont come out.

Do you think I will have to remove this exterior panel?

You should be able to remove the panel in the trailer, find the connection for gas and electric, disconnect them carefully, and then take out the screws that hold the furnace into the floor. This is provided it is still like the original installation. Should be able to get it out from inside.

Thanks but Ive had another look and it certainly has been installed from the exterior - there's a slight lip all the way around the front face of the furnace which makes it too big to pass through the inner skin. Also the exterior panel has been attached with non standard exterior rivets so will be fairly easy to remove.

Anyone got any tips on cleaning up the grey putty like sealant which I think is called butyl - to get a clean surface for siliconing the panel back.?
