The connector I was referring to is the one that connects the ignitor to the controller.  It's where I disconnected the ignitor to check it for resistance, and I thought what the hell maybe I should check going back to the controller.  What would you like photos of?

The furnace, the ignitor, the panel. The burner assy. Whatever you got.

Do you have an altenate method for me sending you photos.  Each photo I have is approx 1.84 MB, and is too large to send as an attachment (as the max. attachment allowed is 500 KB).  I whittled the photos down to 5, but that makes the file 9.08 MB.  Again, I truly appreciate your help and patience with this project.

It's always great to remember you can pare down the resolution of a digital camera!  Too many 16 hour days!  Attached are three photos; showing the burner assembly and the ingitor cables disengaged, my multimeter, when set at its lowest setting of 200, displaying the reading when checking the ignitor, and the unit as a whole.  I can provide more photos, if it helps.  Look forward to your reply.

Looks like the ignitor is ok 93 ohms showing. Check that fuse with the yellow wires connecting to it. If it is bad then replace it and then remove them burners and wire brush them and check for splits or anything else that would cause rollout or overheating like cobwebs in the flues or bird nests etc.
