Default Ford 428 heater hose shutoff valve

Can anyone tell me where I can find a hot water hose shutoff valve like this one? Mines leaking. Thanks.

You see that little nut at the top of the valve? Give it a half turn clockwise and it will stop the leak. If the valve is then too tight, open it up all the way and spray the threads with silicone spray. If it still leaks then you need to remove the screw at the handle, pull the handle off, take the nut off, and replace the packing with plumber's twine.

I don't think that's an original style valve (if it matters to you) as used in the Cobra 427 but I'm not an expert on the big block cars.

Thanks Larry, I believe tightening the nut a bit has stopped the leak. Thanks again Patrick...

FWIW, it's called a packing nut.
