I'm not sure if those are 1" or 3/4". Here's a couple of kits to look at.
Unscrew the anti-syphon cap and see what's inside. Maybe post a link to that pic.

The pipes they attach to are 3/4. I just need to repair the valves, they are leaking and can't be turned fully off anymore.

I saw the kit you suggested, but the parts are need are the metal parts I think? Do they sell the metal part replacements anymore?

You can totally rebuild your valves with new rubber and washers.

Or you could buy something like this and swap the parts. The 3/4" should go on there if it's 3/4".

That's an excellent price by the way.

One advantage of buying the entire brass angle valve, is that you can confirm whether its 'guts' (complete internals as a single unit) will swap out with your original valves. Sometimes the body threads on older valves won't be a match for today's brass valves, and it's good to know where you stand, especially if you ever consider converting the valves to electric operation.
