Vaccum check valve part number

are you just worried about the crack.  most people don't know how to remove them and end up trying to pry or pull them of and breaking them.

It’s not mine

i took this picture from another post.

 

yesterday after dropping the engine down and back up in place to redo the spade connector on the starter, I lost power brakes. 
After wiggeling this connection, vaccum was OK and I got my brake back.

 

I just wanted to replace it preventively

Dealership I bet.....they may only sell the whole pipe???  

That valve is a real bugger to remove sometimes....I replaced the vacuum pump on my rebuilt engine and it doesn't have the same lock down clip system and simply pushes onto the steel pipe. It is firmly attached  so unless you have cracked your valve I wouldn't worry about it. Even if you have cracked it I would JB-Weld the valve up and seal it onto the pipe. Always remembering to be very careful when lifting body off sub frame in the future. You can undo the clips that hold that pipe and get more movement out of it when lifting body up.
The dealership sometimes is crazy cheap when pricing parts, so don't think they are always far too expensive compared to the internet.
