Looking for Manabloc part

I am looking for a BLACK T-handle.  These were used on the old Vanguard system Manabloc.  The only thing I have been able to find is the RED T-handle which is larger and does not work on the older systems.  My BLACK T-handle broke and I hate to have to update the entire system for a .76 cent part.

If you measure the square valve stem and the ID of the hold to access the stem you should be able to find one in the plumbing department of any good hardware store. 

An 8 point socket wall also fit a square valve stem.

If the value stem was square I could use a pair of pliers but it is diamond shape. <sigh>  And since everything is OLD plastic, I have to be careful. 2001 HR.

I just thought that it was square because the red one that I saw was square.  You might me able to modify a red one with a little imagination. 

After educating myself it looks like the older style valve has a smaller diamond, that being the case it should be relative simple to resize the newer style red tool by shimming the diamond to make it smaller.  

Sure like your coach, it's a beauty.

That was a dumb question that I asked in the last post, I removed it.
