Valvetrain parts

I'm replacing the head gaskets on my '08 Outback (4-cyl non-turbo). I broke one of the spring retainers (actually the pin that holds the spring retainer.)

Is that part available separately? All I can find online is the complete valvetrain. Does anyone know of part numbers for individual valvetrain components? In the attached picture it's one of the 2 silver colored pieces that's held in with a hex/allen head bolt (see arrow).

You can request tech support on this page . Visit the Help Center and click on the Request Technical Support option. It will show you the steps on how to contact a Subaru parts specialist with your VIN for the part numbers. Hope this helps.
