running new wire in exsiting conduit

Reply Tue 28 Jan, 2020 09:47 am
So I have a very old house, almost hundred. walls are ship lap wood, so Im trying not to cut into them if I can avoid it.
Electrical, is cloth covered two wire 1 white 1 black in metal conduit.

question is, is it safe and or legal to pull those out and fish thru romex 12-2 thru existing conduit. or does it have to be mounted differently. all interior electrical. nothing in basement or crawl space.

Is it actual conduit or is it old BX (armored) cable? If you have an old house I'm guessing it's BX and you'll have a hard time fishing 12-2 romex through it.

Can you disconnect the existing cable from two ends and use it to pull the new cable through the wire race in the wall?
