Standing pilot conversion

Hi I am looking for a little information about having my natural gas hot water system converted from a standing pilot to an intermittent pilot. I have a Utica 100 AGB boiler, and it is equipped with a Honeywell Aquastat L8148E controller, and two zone valves. I should also note that there is no vent damper on this system.
My question is about the total load that controller will handle, and what is recommended to replace it with. I have researched the Honeywell Y8610U Pilot retrofit kit, which said it requires .7 Amps for the control module and valve. I also have two Honeywell V8043F zone valves rated at .3 A each. Add this up to 1.3 Amps, the aquastat L8148 is rated for no more than 1.2 Amp load.
Thank you for reading this and I appreciate any information you may have _/) Glen
