Pilot light keeps blowing out


I have a older furnace made by intertherm. I was having issues with the pilot not staying lit whilelighting it. Bbc.co I got that fixed with a new thermocouple, the flame is pretty strong and blue. the issue now is when the blower kicks on it will stay in running for about a minute or so and the furnace will shut down and the pilot will be out. Any suggestions is appreciated. Thanks

Pilot and/or main flame blowing out on an older furnace when the main blower starts is indicative of a cracked heat exchanger. I would have that furnace checked by a pro sooner rather than later. Your life, and the loves of your loved ones, may be in jeopardy.
