NO! It will allow combustion gasses to enter the house. What brand of furnace? Can you share a picture? The drain for the condensate is clogged and needs to be flushed. The picture/models number will help me to give you specifics on procedure, but the gist of it is the trap needs to be flushed and that will allow the inducer to throw the water, and stop this from collecting. The condensate is a natural occur acne for furnaces that are vented with PVC we call them "condensing" furnaces for that reason. They have a drain that collects the condensate from the heat exchanger and the exhaust riser then it goes to a gravity drain or a pump that gets rid of the condensate.

RE Michels is the Armstrong distributor. They are Wholesale only but may be able to help you decide what specs the original unit had. If you still have the housing and squerrel cage you just need a motor. Grainier has HVAC PSC motors.

If the inducer fixed it then the pressure switch wasn't closing, and that keeps the igniter from lighting. This also means the gas valve should NOT have been opening. This could be a miss hearing problem, or a problem with the control. If the igniter isn't beeing activated the gas shouldn't be flowing even for ignition trial.

Sounds like it may be over aired. The unit draws air in when the hot exhaust is rising, this pulls air in through the shutters at the Venturi and mixes with the gas that is being pushed through the orafices. The Propper way to diagnose will be to use a manometer to test gas pressure at the manifold, and when hot adjust shutters so the flame is on the burners all the way, not lifting off the tubes. If the gas pressure is in spec a shutter adjustment will solve it. If you know someone with a combustion analyzer they can help you dial it in.
If you google flame lift off I'm sure you'll find videos depicting what I'm talking about.
