Old wood furnace

Have a Monarch Range and Heater Co. add-on wood/coal burning furnace, installed in 1980, attached to my electric furnace. Model is shown as AF1536A and rated at 105000 BTU/h. Unfortunately, there are no operating instructions. Furnace has been checked out and made operable, but do not know how to properly adjust for best operation. Cannot find anything on web for this model, except that company is probably out of business. Can someone help?

I have been doing a lot of research on add on wood furnaces and they all are pretty much the same. Open the flue (if needed) start a fire and open the dampers all the way. After the fire gets going, adjust the dampers so you get the heat you want without the fire burning too fast. The blower fan should kick in by itself if there is a sensor otherwise you may have to do it manually.
