Propane Stove Valve Needed - heres a pic - Shipmate Stove

I have a Shipmate Stove on a Kettenburg 43 that we broke the 90 valve on. My girlfriend fell into it on a gnarly heel. I just need the 90 valvle with the threads (the part in color). If picture doesn't display, it's here. / images / stove.jpg.

I'm trying to leave for Hawaii very soon, I live in a small town. Please help with any leads. I've already contacted Shipmate, and I've already checked Grainger and other popular websites.

I realize I can have things machined and redone, but I'm trying to find a simple, no hassle replacement. Getting into the fabricating is plan B.

Thank you for your help and information.

You might try an appliance parts store. my guess is the valve is similar to the older residential gas stove gas valves. Seems that way anyway based on my looking at the valve

Worst case, try to cut a thread on the bronze valve a bit and put an 1/8" coupler between it and the trunk. You will first have to remove the broken off threads and use an 1/8th" nipple in its place. Only do this if all else fails and you can properly fix it sooner rather than latter date. FWIW
