Sealed Power doesn't list a part # but I found one by size, VK-50. Bring an old keeper with and compare them. It should be close.

Looked up the vk 50 and there's no grooves, the svt valves have 3 grooves so I'm not sure how that would work? I took one off a regular zetec and it's the exact same size and shape but only has 1 groove tried it and it fits perfectly but my local mechine shop warns against using it..
