Are you proficient in gas and water plumbing (esp if the water lines are soldered rather than using fittings you can unscrew).
I've seen it done a few times, and I plan to have guidance from someone who has done it a few times in the past. Gotta learn somehow.
The more I think about it, the more I think I should just replace it. Anything else would just be throwing good money and time after bad. I'll see how the current heater works after I close and decide if it's worth replacing right away or waiting.
At least it's not leaking...
