Your best bet on finding one is the second hand market. Trying to source a brand new one for such an old vehicle will likely yield poorly assembled, and who knows what's inside the power head (=how much oil it returns to the compressor in critical operating conditions), Chinese garbage.

So what would the dealer do? Use a second hand valve? No they would use a quality replacement.
