I think the Vcbo/Vebo of 150 ('54) /100 ('331) are more relevant than
the f.

I'll bet since this is just a simple low speed switching application,
pretty much anything with Vxbo > 100 and _some_ gain will be fine.
A quick look at the circuit board indicates this transistor is
somewhat protected by a Zener as well.

BTW, Doug killed his cold start valve :)
