tripping on roll out 90 percent chance cracked heat exchanger

So after (I assume) you reset the rollout...then what happened? Do you have any other info as to readings or anything?
A tripped rollout ain't a good sign.
How old is this thing? This rollout, its over the burners or in the collector box, or...?

what is the best way to test for a cracked heat exchanger, I read several books and still cant get a good answer?

after I reset the limit, I turned the heater on and it did not roll out, I tested the unit about 10 times, the limit is on the collector box

Sounds like the chimney backdrafted, if this is an old gravity draft model
Probably would be prudent to check that it's not partially blocked or something
Sometimes that kind of thing just happens, if it's excessively windy.

After changing the gas valve, did you check to outlet gas pressure?
