Replace a Thetford Valve with a Valterra?

I have to replace the valve and sanitary tee on my 65 Globetrotter's black water tank. The existing valve is a Thetford 01447 that attaches to the bottom of the tank, followed by a Thetford tee where is gray water drain merges for the sewer hose connection. I can find a replacement for the Thetford valve, but I can't seem to find the Thetford tee. I can find a Valterra tee, but I am concerned the tee won't mate to the replacement Thetford valve. If I change the valve to a Valterra, will the Valterra connect to the tank the same as the Thetford? Or can I just get a valterra tee that will mate to the theford valve? Any insights are appreciated.

I am attempted to include a picture of the valve and tee in question.

Thanks!

The "T" is called a collector.

It has not been available for years.

We have developed a method to repair them to be as good as new.

The cost depends on the condition.

You may be best to just let Inland repair it. But, here are a couple places that have been around for a long time in Columbus - sometimes you can get lucky with stuff they have in old dusty inventory. Good luck.
