Boiler ignition problem

I have a oil fired boiler that heats my home and domestic hot water. The problem I'm having is the furnace starts to fire up and shuts down starts and shuts down and eventually runs a normal cycle although it sometimes does the stop and start at the end of the cycle as well. It has a Honeywell R8184G primary and I can hear the relay inside clicking as the starting and stopping happen. At first it was just a little intermittent starting and stopping but tonight I can hear the relay in the primary clicking as it tries to "decide" whether to close or not and start the boiler.
Is the R8184G most likely the problem?

Thanks for any help!
Dave

The detail pages at Honeywell site are down. I'll have to check back later. Thanks.

Sorry, not sure what that link does for me. I don't see any kind of troubleshooting manual.

I guess if I'd just read the installation instructions I would've know...sorry. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction!
