Default Vintage Wilesco D16 help needed

Hello all. I'm new to this forum and I'm looking for some help/advice on a vintage (early 60's) Wilesco D16 engine.

It needs a new boiler. I emailed Wilesco and was told I could use the 01648 boiler as a replacement. Is there anyone on this forum that has experience with boiler replacement on this model?

Will I be able to use the existing steam pipe with a new boiler? Will I have to get a new whistle? I've heard there was a thread pattern change. I welcome any and all comments . Thank you
