pulling wire through old flexible conduit
 
Hello, I have an older house that needs to be rewired. The existing wire is run through metal flexible conduit. I am trying to find out if it is do-able to pull new wire through the existing conduit. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

You should be able to pull new wiring through the old conduit from box to box. You can use the old wire to pull it with or use an electrician's snake. Bend a hook in the end of one wire of each, connect the hooks, tape them together and pull them through.
Good Luck!
Mike
