Replacement Thetford Water Fill?

We're in the process of renovating our 1979 Airstream Excella 500 31' and are in need of a replacement for the Thetford Water Fill (aka Potable Water Fill or Gravity Water Fill). Any ideas where I can find one? The normal suspects (InlandRV and Vintage Trailer Supply) didn't have it

There are two replacement parts out there that I can find, but neither is a direct replacement and would require cutting open a larger hole than is there currently.

SS Waterfill w/Lock 39769W



Gray potable water fill 601194

Your only hope is to find one on Ebay or a salvage yard.
