The fuel shutoff valves that I have seen available seem to be either the screw type for 1/4 inch line or the flip-type (lever) for 5/16 inch line. Your tractor should be a '57 which I had thought was 1/4 inch originally, but I'm not positive about that.
Do you know which size the fuel line fitting is at the valve end? Sometimes over the years, owners have changed the fuel lines to all sorts of homemade setups and especially lately since new ones from CNH are so expensive.

I have the valve with me and the opening for the fuel line measures about 1/2 inch and it might actually be 7/16 inch.

The sizes I referred to (1/4" and 5/16") refer to the size of the line, not of the threaded fitting.

Maybe the best thing would be to take your valve to an auto parts store and check to see what size brake line fitting screws in. These have flare fittings just like fuel line. Then you would know what valve to buy based on the size of the existing line. Be careful when you buy the valve to match the size unless you want to put in a new line or reducer.
Both styles of valve will bolt into the tank interchangeably.
