If you find a compound that is cloggy enough to stop a leak, then it is probably cloggy enough to clog up piping, valves and controls. I would not consider this a good repair.
I don't know if Y/S made cast iron boilers, I think they were mostly steel firetube boilers. If it's a firetube, it should be repairable. Depending on size & condition, and nature of leaks, the repair of leaking tube(s) could run anywhere from $200 to re-roll a tube to $20,000 or more to replace firetubes and do extensive welded repairs to shell & heads. Your mileage may vary.
