Hot Water Boiler - Spare Parts to Keep to avoid Emergency

I have TWO VHE-6 Model of Weil McNail Boiler in my house and I was wondering what are the parts have high failure rate so I can keep one in stock ?. Recently my ignitor went bad and I did not have in stock. If I would have ignitor in spare, I would have fixed issue in 1/3 hour. Similarly I like to have some other parts in stock so I can fix issue by simply replacing it.

Please suggest me list of parts I can keep it in stock. I am sure sometime in lifetime, I will need them.

These days installers don't like to install a circulator pump, for each zone. If you only have one pump for all zones, that would be my choice.

Since so many parts to a hydronic system are external or not considered part of the boiler it is hard to know what is needed here. Send a picture with a few words about the system. At minimum stock spare nozzles and oil filters.
