How do I distinguish a valve that will work with my wall-unit from one that won't?

Holy crap, a 7000 MVRLC valve is ~$150!

@MichaelKaras - I don't think that'll be a problem, as there doesn't seem to be any overtemperature cutout at all. Remember, this is a heater from the 60s/70s.

In that case, could I replace the whole valve assembly? I'm willing to take the whole burner out and replace it, if need be.

@shirlockhomes - Correct (well, except when I turn the pilot off for the summer, but then I have to manually re-light it in the winter).

comment What type of ethernet cable do I need for outdoor use?
This is very, very wrong. CAT5E and CAT6 do have different cable types.

Well, the can I bought was actually $5.99, but it sure did work.

Second, if you want to come over to my house, get on a ladder, and scrape a hornet's nest off from a hard-to-access cranny under the eaves, so the hornets don't get hurt, you're welcome to. I personally want a solution that won't end up with me dropping an angry hornet's nest on my foot.
