I know this sounds dumb, but among other things I need to figure out if the burner chamber is supposed to be packed with a fiberglass type of material (or asbestos?) or if this is just more mouse activity! I suspect it's a mouse house, brought in through the exhaust port) but I'm hoping to find some documentation or hear from others with the same heater.

That's the original floor; I've seen it in a number of other photos on this site. If I could find a box of them I'd patch in some of the damaged spots. I know a guy with a shop full of old kitchen materials, so I'm holding out hope that I can score some vintage tile and Formica! The stuff has been sitting for 30-50 years!

I have a 62 SC, from son of original owner, it is the same furnace. Mine is clean inside. And BOY does it heat. Holy moly. I had it on for about 3 hours the other night, woke up and was cooking, even with vent and a window cracked.

Hi shastaluego, thanks for the reply. I missed it until just now. I appreciate the help. I hope to fire it up soon. Let me know if you have a blog or build thread. I'm learning a lot by looking at other folks' sites!
I have a 64 1500 which has this same furnace, it seems to put out a lot of heat even when it was full of stink bugs. Lots of vacuum time to get it clean. Mine has a very long tube on the temperature control sensor which is just shoved in the side of the furnace. Can anyone tell me where it should be located?
