Just fixed the same problem of the float absorbing gas and sinking. I used a replacement float that was for a Ford Model A. I cut off the retaining nut, put on the new float, and bent the rod a little at the end so it wouldn't slide off.

That would work well too. as I said earlier, there isn't going to be any stress against this rod holding the float on.
