Default Heat Riser Exhaust Valve - Repeal or Replace?

Greetings All - Hope you are enjoying summer here in the northern hemisphere!

My 1960 352 heat riser is stuck. Looks like compared to the drawing in the shop manual it's at least partially open... From what I'm reading here, looks like many 352 owners eliminate the valve or disable it, so for about 1/3 of the cost of a replacement valve, is there any reason why I should not just go with the 390 spacer and be done with it? I think I've only used the heater 2x in 8 years so that's not an issue.
