Not sure on the air slide valve port size , gave it a mathematical guess, the bore was honed and lapped the slide .

Hot tube valve assembly , never seen one close, just glances so this is my best shot at it so far, it heated a 1/2 round bar stock red.

Mine has a tapered pin that goes into the end of the valve
I had to shave a nut thinner for the valve to open enough and it didn’t have a cap on it so I had one made, just have to make sure there is enough space for the spring cap to come down,
It has to hang lower than the threads or the spring doesn’t have any room to collapse to let the valve open
