Hi, I'm Tim and I'm an HVAC expert here to assist you with your questions. Thanks for the opportunity to help!
Yes, you are correct. The Champion CJ8 can be used as a replacement
This can be picked up at any small engine repair shop
Even called Lennox direct and they were not helpful - just said don't make the 43G62 anymore and don't know of any replacement/alternative! Still a few available online if you search for around $200! I see the CJ8 is around $2
Yes, I have used this as a replacement myself
Great. Do you think the Lennox distributors are 'ignorant' or use this to sell a new furnace? I will still need someone to fit it, and they may not want to play ball.
They are not taking responsibility for this furnace anymore
Well I'll give them a call and see what they say! Thanks for the confirmation!
