Pressure gauge on Burnham boiler

I have a Burnham gas boiler for a hot water system. It's about 20 years old and works just fine but the water pressure/temp gauge has quit working. My questions are:
1) Can I get a replacement gauge? Where?
2) How difficult is it to replace?
3) Would it make more sense or be easier to buy a "generic" gauge and have it installed on one of the inlet or outlet pipes?

Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

Paul

Companies such as Johnstone, Grainger sell these gauges. There are more than several manufactures of gauges with a wide price difference for every gauge.
Not hard to replace at all with regular steamfitter tools.

You want a gauge back where the manufacturer installed it. You could place additional gauges in the locations you mentioned if provisions are in place for a gauge.
