You could also unhook the thermostat wires at the burner and see if the burner shuts down. If it shuts off you have a stat/wiring issue, if it doesn't you have a primary control issue.

Don't know what would smell like that from the boiler. Could it be sewer gas from a dried trap or drain? I've run into that before.

If there's no valve on the pump, then you should get oil from the nozzle line until the burner goes on safety.
After you get the 2-3 seconds of oil, what does the pump pressure do?
