Welcome to Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you with your issue. If my initial response doesn’t answer your question then let me know and we can continue our conversation.

What's the model number of your boiler? How long does it (the burner?) stay on?

I'm not available for a call now. What you're describing sounds like a flame sensing issue. If you replaced the pilot burner assembly and it's still doing the same thing and you have good connections then the ignition control is suspect. I would replace the control if I found what you describe.
