Where to buy a new steam valve

Options
Hello, 
This weekend i found out my baseboard heater was leaking from a cracked cast iron steam valve. I cant find any. Need some insight.

    Looks like a crack in the cast iron manifold that is part of the heater itself.

    Is this steam or hot water? The chrome plated item on the top is an air bleeder for a hot water system.

    There are no valves in the picture, just the manifold.

    This could have frozen to cause the crack?

    Time for a new heater element.
