The boiler you have may be able to be repaired, depending on the break, you might be able to braze it or have it brazed. Otherwise, you will need to beat the bushes where you live for a replacement, look on line, make lots of calls to salvage yards, used equipment dealers. I think you might wind up with a second more or less working machine and use your machine for parts to repair the "new" machine, in the end.
