Exhaust manifold heat riser

So I get a call from the mechanic I have working on the 223 engine out of my truck. It seems the heat riser valve was frozen but he got it freed up, but the bi-metal spring is shot, and needs replaced.

I've checked all the catalogs that I have, as well as checked all the local auto parts stores and can't come up with one.

I've read thru all the post I could find on here and in other forums, about the heat riser...the pros and cons of even having them installed.... and still no one posted a link to where I can get one.

Since it was original equipment I would like to replace it. So does anyone got a link to a site that carries the riser valve and spring?

Thanks in advance for the help!

Here is a pic of the riser as it looked when I pulled the engine. Did alot of surfing the net again today and have not had any luck at all. You can't even get the exhaust manifold unless it is from a junkyard.

1952 is starting off with a positive reputation.
Did you check with Chebby parts dealers. Not sure but I imagine the old stovebolts had one.

You are correct, sir! Found this:

Bowtie Bits Antique Truck Parts :: 1955-59 Exhaust Manifold Heat Riser Spring

Hard to believe it couldn't be made to work on a Ford, and I found no one with the Ford part. They're pretty proud of them, tho $$$$$

I saw that one and I also found this one...

American Classic Truck Parts Inc.

looks to be the same thing but a little cheaper!

Better, but they should only be $2 or $3!

Just thought i'd let people know...I went ahead and bought the chevy/gmc riser spring from bow tie bits, and it came in today....it is exactly like the spring that came off.

So for anyone that needs or wants one ...here you go!

So does that mean it's the same as a Ford, or your truck already had a Chevy piece?! Would be nice to know. Let us know if it works.
