Fresh Water Drain Valve Thread Size

Will a Dual Thread Fresh water drain valve at 3/8" and 1/2" made by Camco fit the fresh water tank on a 70 Ambassador? My old valve outside diameter is 5/8".

Follow up to my original question is yes. I discovered the 5/8" outside diameter fits a 3/8" hole in the plastic plumbing department. The key is how measurements differ between metal and plastic threads. I learned the plastic threads on my drain valve are each tapered, unlike metal threads. As the plastic part is turned inward it gets tighter in the whole. That is what I learned.
