Different Guy

and

A nicer looking one at that! Lol!

I've spent about an hour looking for the part

No Luck thus far

Not knowing the thread types and sizes for the sender and the housing the pic was vague

I did pull up several Google searches and hit "Images"

You reckon another application might screw in and even if it's shaped differently just might work?

Here's one example

https://www.google.com/search?q=F452-18599-A&espv=2&biw=1366&bih=643&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjyxNzgpdXNAhWDKCYKHQqZBSwQ_AUIBigB#tbm=isch&q=Ford+part+number+F452-18599-A&imgrc=e_yX_Y0vb1UPeM%3A

The only other option I can add would be to hit an auto salvage yard.
