LP gas fired steam boiler with induced draft

I've been looking for an LP gas fired steam boiler with induced draft. The chimney is in bad shape and needs to be removed. It would replace a Burnham oil fired steam boiler rated at 156 MBH with 488 sq ft steam.

    Can you fix the chimney enough to put a liner in it? I don't believe anyone makes a steam boiler with induced draft.

    You could power vent a natural draft boiler through the side wall

    The chimney's problem is it's poor foundation. I have it strapped to the house just to keep it from falling over.
    The Burnham Independence PV is a gas boiler with induced draft but it only comes in natural gas and there is no conversion kit.
    I have heard that exterior power vents can be noisy and are susceptible to the weather.
    Thank you for your suggestions.

    Fix The chimney.

    Most economical way is to remove the masonry chimney and replace with a double lined stainless steel chimney.

    That chimney comes with kits to secure it to any building surface.

    A clean chimney will prevent any possibility of CO poisoning.
