Default AIRCO torches

Anybody know of anyone who rebuilds or has parts for older AIRCO torches that is reliable? Need a new fuel gas valve. Dropped mine and now it leaks as the stem is bent.

Greg.....I'm contacting you privately but for the sake of the forum....what is the model number of the torch AND is it strictly a cutting torch or a mixer body for cutting/brazing attachments?

Not sure what the model number is, maybe the 818 0750 number that is on the lable. It is a mixer body with interchangable heads. Took it to local Airco shop and they gave me the runaround and wanted me to buy a new one. $$$$$$
