Hey everybody, I need some help. I have the furnace outlined in the subject line (it is from 1986). The pilot will not start. when I let go of the starter button the pilot will not stay on. does anyone have any suggestions? Also, where can I find a manual for this unit? I can't find it anywhere. Thanks!

Sounds like a bad millivolt thermocouple.
