Angry Carb Float for an autolite 1100?

Can anyone tell me where to get a new carb float for an Autolite 1100?

the one I have looks like its been soldered more times than its share and cant handle anymore, and needless to say it doesn't "float" anymore. I've checked the normal car parts places, Autozone, advanced, O'reilly's, NAPA, and nothing. even checked Mustangs Unlimited, John's Mustang, etc and nothing. I'd rather not get an entirely new carb just because the float is bad. any ideas. I've also looked at Pony carb but again, cost outweighs my current situation. any suggestions would be great!

I think you'll find that's the Carter carb float.
