I have several of the early Jensens with the cartridge type heater in them. One thing you need to make sure of is there isn't a hole in the tube in boiler. These are well know to have a hole in them. If it's good and heater is bad, I have made brass sleeves and put new metal cartridge heaters in them and works fine. Just make sleeve a slip fit in tube and drill hole in center of sleeve for slip fit for new cartridge heater. I've found these heaters on Amazon and are fairly reasonable price. For boiler the size you have I wouldn't put over at 250-300 watt heater in it. If the tube does have a hole in it when you make the sleeve don't drill hole for heater completely though and solder it in tube.
