Replacing a coil is not very difficult as it requires bolting the new coil in place over a cleaned gasket surface and repiping the coil.
However, getting the coil off without breaking mounting bolts and/or retapping to get the new one in place after several decades is a challenge. Finding that you have the boiler apart with no heat til the new one arrives and is installed can be disappointing. It is possible and easy to have an indirect heater attached to the boiler piping as a new zone, abandoning and plugging the old heating coil.
It might just be time to get a new, higher efficiency boiler to replace the antique.
