We need a z-value of 43 corresponding to crack width,w = 0.004 inch


What code are you designing  to?  The 1999 ACI 318 did away with the z factor, replacing it with Eqn 10-4 which directly specifies the spacing.

      s = 540/fs - 2.5 Cc  (Eqn.  10-4)

Even if you are not designing to 318-99 or 02,  you could look at what this equation would do for you.
