Why not rebuild the carb that you have?

Ford 801/4000 basic carb rebuild kit

Ford 801/4000 comprehensive carb rebuild kit

You can also go with a rebuilt carb for about half the price of a new replacement:

Ford 801/4000 rebuilt carb

They changed the diameter of the fuel line at some point and the fitting sizes changed accordingly

1/4" diameter fuel line

5/16" diameter fuel line

And there are two fuel shut-off valves depending on the fuel line diameter:

Ford 801/4000 shut-off valve - for 1/4" fuel line

Ford 801/4000 shut-off valve - for 5/16" fuel line

As for the fuel line between differing sizes, there are barbed (for rubber) and threaded (for hard lines) adapters in most good hardware stores. A rebuild and couple adapters and it'll seem like a new tractor.
I have put a rebuild kit in the carb and now all I need is an adapter.....we have on of those "old school" hardware stores in the next town over, I'm headed there this morning. Thanks again for your input !
