I have done many of these. Unless your quite knowledgable on the consequence of making a mistake while doing this, i'd recommend you hiring a consiencious serviceman. Dont forget, , a cup of oil is equal to a stick of dynomite under the perfect conditions. when installing this, carefully follow the manufacturers instruction on the combustion chambers clearances to the blast tube or combustion head. THere are baffles usually added, accordingly to the draft measurements you attain, the zozzle size , pattern, and angles is an exact adjustment. Prepare ahead of time the face gasket for the burner plate,Mark the depht of the burner intrusion so that you reinstall it the correct way.If this was originaly done by a ****** oil burner mechanic, this might have been the reason why it failed, as, if this was all done accdording to code and practice, this shouldn't have failedi'll watch for your progress and intrude (lol) when i see i shouldgood luck

    If a oil heating contractor wishes to sell him one, they usually can get it, i totally agree with you, there could be legal reprecussions helping him installing this.
    In our province, we are totaly responsible for the heating products we sell to unl;icensed techn or home owners. i usually would disagree with this form of big brother control, but this i'll make an exception
    keep good guys

Your heating supply store will have a replacement unit.  I do suggest you get a pro to do this, however.  Your burner should be tuned and this is not a job for an amateur.

Light the pilot light on weil mclain gas boiler

Joanne If there is a standing pilot on the boiler. Put the gas valve to the pilot setting and push in on the valve while holding a long match or BBQ lighter @ the pilot assembly that is behind the small access port at the top of the gas train assembly. Dont hold the pilot knob doun without having a flane @ the gas outlet of the pilot assembly or gas will build up and could blow out of the port and hold the gas valve in for about a minute or two and let it go it should stay light when you let it go .If it does not sta lit and it IS a standing pilot there- is a thermo-coupling that may be bad If the pilot does not stay lit.
If there is an electronic ignition rather than a standing pilot then you do not need to light it will light itself if the electronic ignition is bad or if the flame sensor is dirty. If you remove the pilot assembly from the gas train and clean the flame sensor rod with a piece of .0000 steel wool it could help. If not you may want to call a licensed pipe-pitter ( OR plumber depending where you live and the local codes).
If you don't thing you could do it yourself then call a licensed pipi-fitter or plumber. (Gas only has to leak once for there to be a problem so please do call someone licensed if you don't think you could do it your self.),
Here is a link to the manufacturer you should be ale to fing your equipment and the install instructions, if you look around .You can download a PDF and print it
Good luck and stay warm

Have a water leak inside boiler keeps putting pilot light out

Not good at all. Check for a fill level probe/float/sensor that may be acting up causing the unit to over fill, or you may be looking at buying a new boiler.
