Default IHC 1.5 hp Type M Three Way Fuel Valve Selector

In the process of restoring a Type M 1.5 hp IHC that is missing the three way fuel selector valve. I plan on trying to turn a new brass one on the lathe but I cannot find any information on the dimensions of the valve or spring that is supposed to hold it in the carburetor. I would appreciate any information that you may have on this item and if anyone else has tried to make one.

According to the original thread on his engine:

I'm going out on a limb and guess he doesn't have another.

Vladnick, I have a 3hp engine that I could take measurements from, but I believe that the 1˝, 3, and 6hp engines all used different valves.

Hello Steve
Thanks the information, if it wouldn’t be too much trouble I would appreciate the measurements. I have made a couple of attempts at turning one on my newly restored lathe but I am still learning how to cut angles and such. So my measurements need refining a bit and measurements will take out the guess work. Any help is is much appreciated. Thanks
