You could check to see if there is flow out the over pressure valve.  If I remember it hangs off the right side of the boiler and has a plastic tube going to the drip tray. It might be scaled and stuck open.

I'm suspecting some sort of ridiculous scale buildup may be the cause. And was thinking about doing a complete tear down of the boiler. What may I be missing and are there gaskets that need to be replaced if I tear it apart to do a descale?
