WTB exhaust manifold heat riser spring

Hey!

I am looking for the bi-metallic spring that controls the valve on the exhaust manifold.

I have a 1986 4.9 (300)

The valve is still free but the spring is shot.

The Ford part number is C5AZ9449A

Thanks .... Mike

Sorry for the sloooooow delay.

Truck is up and running!

A cable might be a good idea ... or a solenoid to pull the riser when it hits temp.

Finding the spring would just make things easy.
