SOURCE: pilot light will not light
Sounds like you may need a new electronic control module. This is a rectangular shaped plastic box that has wires coming out of it. This is what tells the pilot to light on these older furnaces.

Look around the burners. Look for a little round cylinder with some wires attached and a small knob that you push in to reset. There will be more than 1 of these. You should also try to figure out why it is tripping.

Sometimes the thermostat wire (not sure of the technical name) gets oxidized and can't sense the heat (it's there as a safety measure so that when the pilot light goes out, the gas shuts off). If it isn't to hard to get to, sometimes you can use some aluminum foil to clean the wire so that it senses the heat of the pilot light flame. Make sure the main unit is off, and let the unit sit for awhile to make sure there is no residual gas hanging around. If this doesn't work, you might have to get a specialist out to replace that piece. Hope this helps.
