Damaged Pilot

I'm testing my water heater on my 63 Tradewinds and it works ok but the technician noticed the pilot is a bit damaged and told me it might stop working soon. Anybody knows if this type of pilot is still available on the market to purchase or if there is any replacement that might solve the problem?

Thank you in advance

Where is the damage? Looks like it could use a little cleaning.

The cleaning will be done but the curve in front of the pilot is cracked like loosing it's skin, it looks it will not live for long...

The curved part must be the thermocouple. With some minor modification you may be able to make a bracket which would hold a standard thermocouple like those used on a water heater.
