Fuel tank valve for 52 F5 specs

Does anyone know how I can replace the shut off valve at the bottom of the in cab fuel tank? I lost mine when I had it cleaned, I'm an idiot. Anyone know the specs?

The catalog shows the valve to be male 1/8"-NPT and as I recall the fuel tubing is 5/16". It also shows a bushing to reduce the outlet from 1/4" NPT to 1/8 NPT. I don't recall that but it was probably stuck in the tank outlet.

Green Sales shows to have 5, NOS Parts shows to have them for (gulp) $30... NAPA has them too but it's about impossible to find them in their online system.

I think the bushing is in there. I can't believe I lost that thing! You said Green Sales? Is that an auto parts house? I only have NAPA, but they are great for obsolete stuff for me.

Green Sales Company - Obsolete Ford parts

This is as close as I can find on NAPA's site: NAPA AUTO PARTS - ground plug brass valve

It's straight instead of 90-degrees. This one could be used with a 90-deg elbow on the outlet of the tank: NAPA AUTO PARTS - ground plug brass valve

Those are quality ground-plug brass valves.

Thanks to all who helped me with this. I was able to get one from Green for about $20. I put it on, works great, but my fan problem is back. Please, see that thread for parts number help.
