This older York 80% furnace is done, parts where starting to be thrown at it and finally the question came up “is it worth it or should we buy a new furnace”. Anytime your furnace is 10 plus years old and your starting to look at a major repair, its time to really consider a new furnace.
The existing York was an upflow model, not a typical install for the Northwest. In an upflow model the heated air gets delivered upward into ducting, usually when the furnace is located in the basement.
As you can see above I had to make a small supply transition on top of the furnace. The new American Standard 80% furnace is a little bit smaller than the older York furnace. I field fabricated the return air connection. Everything else bolted right up.
