They will be hard to find used, likely impossible new. You might have to buy a used one or a tank with one in it on Ebay. On my project GL 1000 I meticulously cleaned mine when I derusted and lined the tank. Afterwards I reinstalled and it works fine.

Looking through the parts fiche, part numbers for 1975 through 1979 are all the same. 37800-371-008 All discontinued but you probably already know that.
Unless the coil wire is broken they can usually be cleaned up and reused.

no mine is broken the original owner filled the tank up to the top with diesel around 20 something years ago and let it sit so it fell apart i can find early 80's floats but not 70's
