I would replace the whole valve assy. Shoot me a PM if you need one.

If it has a flame, I like it.
While it is certainly nice to find what you collect, in reality you must collect what you find.

Is the eccentric block still in the valve assembly? Is the eccentric lever packing still in the valve assembly? This is an issue that might be able to be repaired.

I just replaced the broken lever on a 202 with one ordered from OCP.  I put a torch to the valve where the lever goes in and the packing popped out and landed on the bench.  I removed the eccentric, cleaned and replaced.  I had read here that installing and aligning the lever and eccentric was a tedious process.  Might have been beginners luck but it went smoothly. I placed the valve in a vice with the tip cleaner pointing, centered the eccentric in the hole and holding the cleaner lever in the 3 or 9:00 position screwed the new lever into place checking that the lever engaged the eccentric hole.  Be sure to leak check the tightness.

Since the bushing is stuck in there you're going to have to heat it up with a torch nice and hot and see if you can pry a small seal pick or screw driver in to pull it out, then remove the eccentric block. Installing a new tip cleaner will be a piece of cake after that. If not, just replace the valve assembly!
