74 Avenger TT, The Good and The Bad

Well, I was out here looking around our new camper, 1974 Avenger. And here is the good and bad so far. The stove and oven work. The furnace does not. The previous owner said it did. I did not have time to check out everything when I picked it up.
The piolet light won't light. It kind of tries but almost acts like there is not enough gas getting to it.
Guess my next step will be to tear the furnace apart to check and clean everything. I will take the main gas valve apart as well and clean it out. Here is hoping that works.

If it is a gravity type furnace. ( no blower style ) Look for spyder webs around the pilot light orifice.
