My mother's boiler pilot light fails to stay on, I suspect the thermo
couple is failing to power the gas solenoid, any other possibilities?
As this type of open flued, permanent pilot boiler is old hat now I
think a more modern fan flues condensing boiler may have quite a good
pay back. Having been severely "caught" by my own suprima I wonder
what better boilers may be recommended?

It is not possible to suggest replacement boilers without looking at the
bigger picture of the overall heating and plumbing. You could try to see
what would be the nearest replacement - you would want a plain non-combi
non-condensing, non-system boiler.
