I see 3 furring strips rivited to the interior wall around the furnace is their anything behind them? And ....before I remove it I want to light it to see if it works..HOW??? Serious newbie...be gentle.
Thanks all!

You will also need to disconnect the vent to the exterior wall.
If you are removing it, why light it? At that age, most recommend a service check by a qualified technician. Chances are you would be fine, but BOOM is never a good sound...

Look at post #328 in this thread. Yours very likely is in similar condition.

In addition to the screws which hold the cabinet to the floor. If you take off the front cover you should see 2 screws which hold the furnace works to tracks inside the cabuinet. Take out these screws and the external inlet / outlet cover, gas line , thermostat and 12v lines and the inner works slide out. If the furnace is a NT22 there was a safety recall. Many parts will not be available and it is next to imossible to get anyone to work on these old furnace.. If you are putting in a newwer furnace you might want to save the lower cabinet for ir its ductwork connection.
