Looking for Panelray parts

Well just about done restoring my Panel Ray Furnace for my 56 AS. Gave it one last fire up and rechecking all the fittings with the old soap suds trick and low and behold I found a crack in the Thermocouple housing. More the just a crack really. The whole tread piece, which is very thin was cracked. I had another, but that one is not working, can't figure out why magnets and cooper wire can go bad, but they must have.
So I am looking for any parts that one may have out there, or I'll even take a whole furnace if I have to. Looking for the type pictured.
Thanks for any leads one may be able to give me. I have to much invested not to use it now, plus I just love these things!

I am really surprized that there has not been one response on someone having one of these old furnaces laying around! Everyone seems to replace them with newer unit's, maybe they all get thrown out, god I hope not. Well I located one in Calif and will have it next week, but I am still out there looking, just want some extra parts to have on hand.

Have you tried calling to see if the thermo coupling pictured is available?
