Exactly what I'm doing now. I was at work when I posted the question.
Original smoke (at least I think it is) is working. Switched smokes, and it seems that the smokes are okay, wiring is issue.
For the original smoke receptacle, took it off, and as expected, a lot of the wiring was covered with paint, so can't see what is going on until I rub some of it off.
3 wire nuts. One all black, one yellow with red, and the 3rd one is all white.
