Vacuum control valve

OK. I got a 1985 itasca with a GM 454 in it. I accidentally broke the vacuum control valve. Checked all the usual places. I'm told it was a dealer item, ergo they never stocked them. Same story over And over again everywhere I went. Local Chevy sealer says they don't "really" stock parts for vehicles that old. Not sure what "really" meant? Oh by the way also looking for an AC bracket, the tab broke off mine. Anyway, does anyone have an idea where I might find these parts?

Found the part on the website. Guess I was calling it by the wrong name.

Thanks grizz! I ordered it and it should be here soon. I am becoming more and more frustrated with the dingbat women who work At parts stores. I mean its obvious they aren't mechanical when u see there 1 1/2 nails painted With little sunsets in them. It's becoming apparent just describing where your part lives and what it's connected too isn't a viable way to get a part anymore.
