If the good Doc replies do what he sez but,,,,,,,, I made one a while back like this. Put the fuel valve in your lathe and turn the hex down to .437. Either run a 7/16-20 die down the existing thread or pick up the thread and single point it to match. I took a pc. of hex stock and made a new nut to fit it. Or you could take a 7/16-20 nut and face it off to about an 1/8" long. Put it all back together with a new gasket and set your float to 1". this will be a starting point.

edit:
On October 1st I took the pictures I guess I was planning on posting it but maybe I didn't. A sandwich, a pickle, and a rerun of Pulp Fiction may have gotten in the way.
