If you want to replace the exhaust vent, I will give you mine. If the steel part of the furnace is gone, you will need to replace the furnace.

The International Oil Burner furnaces rust out pretty badly.

My furnace looked new, no evidence of rust. When I turned it upside down about 5 lbs of rust fell out of the heat exchanger.

Replaced mine with a Suburban. Looks like yours just rusted to nothing. Not uncommon.

Sig.

Get rid of that furnace, "QUICKLY".

They have a huge desire to explode. The older it is, the more likely it's going to happen.

There was 20 some odd modifications to that furnace, when it was new.
