Williamson Natural Gas Furnace question
I have a 1972 Williamson 150,000 btu natural gas Temp-o-matic furnace, model #1114-15-3. Every once in a while the blower will come on for approximately 30 seconds and then shut off without the burner coming on. I suspect (possibly) a bad limit switch which in this case was made by Robert-Shaw. 1. Is there another component that would cause this malfunction; and 2. Where would I purchase a limit switch for this unit?

You suspect incorrectly. No DIY here though. Hire a pro or even better get a new furnace.

Even if we could provide DIY help here, you can't get parts for that unit. It's been out of production for 40-years. I've replaced many of them but not in over 10-years!! Do yourself a favor and get something properly sized and high efficiency with a variable speed blower. Your gas and electric bills will drop and suddenly, you'll realize just how much it's cost you to keep that old Williamson so long.If YOU want change, YOU have to first change.
If you are waiting for the 'other guy' to change first, just remember, you're the 'other guy's' other guy. To continue to expect real change when you keep acting the same way as always, is folly. Won't happen. Real change will only happen when a majority of the people change the way they vote!

Get a new furnace. If its a sentimental thing you can move it to the backyard as a planter..... It probably has a leaking heat exchanger anyhow, under the ring or the welds.
