With all those savings a bottle of Crown Royal whiskey should end up on the sled too.

The second parts store, buys it from a 5th or 6th middle man, and they all make money on it too.

Nah, I wouldn't be mad, I know how the supply chain works, just can't get as close as I would like to be

Cozys is a pretty honest and fair bunch. I know how much that trap costs and they did not make that much on it. Maybe thats why they are still in business after many years.

if you take the long drain route out to the right side you have to be VERY careful not to get a sag in the drain hose from the trap thru the cabinet or it will get waterlogged and not siphon properly. still need an open tee where it exits on the right side. would not glue a solid pipe in. clear hose (at HDepot off the roll) is better plus you can see if it is draining properly. those are VERY finicky furnaces and they changed the setting of the press switch on some as they had lots of nuisance tripping.

thanks for the info guys, once I get the part I'll double check I am going to do it right before going forward! might be two weeks though, I sware everything goes bad at once, first the AC today, now have a bad brake line on my car leaking fluid....
