Welcome to TC. If you have a stick trans you can probably get by without it.
It is really only needed for auto trans cars that have auto choke and are on slippery surfaces like mud snow or ice.
It prevents the fronts from grabbing when the choke is on fast idle and auto is in gear.
Master Power has the origonal looking valves, but they are very expensive. They may have a cheaper replacement valve that looks differrent.
I have some further explanation of the valve function on my page below.

gforce, I just got a Rick's First Gen. catalog, they show them in there. Prior to knowing Ricks had them, I had mine rebuilt by a place called Camaro Country. They were a bit steep with the price, but I have to say it works just fine now. If you want the info on Camaro Country, let me know. I can e-mail it to you.

I got a rebuilt metering valve from Rick's and it was bad. They took it back with no problems.
