Leaking Section Weil McLain LGB 10

How do I remove the jacket in order to look at where the leak is coming from? The WM installation manual (online at http://www.weil-mclain.com/en/assets/pdf/550-141-186_0703_LGBManual.pdf ) refers to separate "jacket erecting instructions" which are not listed on their web site. Can the rear jacket be removed without removing the flue and getting into any area where flue gas might escape?



The area near the rear jacket is really tight in my boiler room.



The WM brochure seems to show that the removal of the rear jacket allows for inspection of the top of the sections.

This steam boiler is about 7 years old. Located in Brooklyn, NY.



The leak so far is not major and the boiler makes steam ok. This boiler is used only in the heating season. You can see where the drip of the leak has started to corrode the burners at the left in the rightmost photo below.



All condensate return lines have been examined and are in excellent condition.



What I really need is a patient steam guy who won't try to sell me a new boiler.
