Can I use a 750 millivolt generator on a 250 - 500 millvolt Gas Valve


This thread is old, but the posters are obviously knowledgeable.
I want to have a replacement ready in case my old General Controls B60 valve fails:

My HVAC expert who maintains the system notes that the replacement must be very similar to the original B60; otherwise we are creating a new, unproven system, and he is reluctant to take on that liability. The regulator/valve/boiler have been working very well for over 70 years; the only replacements have been the controls (aquastat, thermostat, thermopile, relay). Seems like there should be a way to replace the valve, rather than spend $10K or more to replace the whole system.

I have an Ideal boiler system which is over 70 years old:

I have or can get spares for all the control elements, but do not have a spare for the General Controls B60 valve. Can anyone recommend a replacement part?

Why 96 pictures of your heating system?
