New thermostat is now installed onto the main gas valve body and the furnace
works just fine ! ! However, I have a concern regarding the fresh air intake and the exhaust (burned gas). The intake and the exhaust, on the street side of the unit, are immediately next to each other. This indicates to me that the intake will be taking in fresh air AND exhaust fumes. This appears to be the original furnace
and intake/chimney system.
Doesn't make sense to me, from a safety standpoint. Any other CJr owners out there who can verify that this is the factory-built system ??
