      I have a McDonnell 47-2 automatic boiler feed with a low water cutoff. I just replaced it with a new one as the old one had rust build up in the float (which I found later I could have cleaned out manually).

      The problem for you is they cost around $500, and although the replacement was a breeze, I already had the water feed lines in place. If you can do that yourself, it’s only 2 valves and maybe 10′ of 1/2 copper line. zOne link to browse is http://www.statesupply.com/displayCategory.do?Id=764
      I bought mine at http://www.patriot-supply.com/products/mcdonnellmiller.cfm/StartRow/151
