Can anyone help with the age of this gas boiler? 6BRSEN-J5 boiler number G-26. There is also a DG stamped kind of

next to the G-26. Would like to find a parts manual. Gas man said I had a leak at the gas valve inlet and I do not know what or where that is. I would like to get familiar with the parts and replacement costs in case I need something replaced. I just do not want to get overcharged or ripped off. Thanks! Chris

    That boiler is probably 1950s-60s.

    A manual and nameplate information will not be any help. The valve you have is probably not available but can easily be crossed over to something that is available.

    The gas regulator and valve in your last picture would need to be taken out and a new gas valve (which comes with a built in regulator) would be installed.

    Then the unit should be run and tested , adjusted and a combustion test should be done.

    If you just have a simple leak at the pipe threads and there is no damage the pipe can be removed , cleaned and redoped using the same old valve.
