I have NEVER seen a fuel gauge on a WD45. Have you got one on yours? Got a picture?

I have one for mine. It was an aftermarket deal. Not sure who made it. Has a tube that goes to the bottom of the tank with a cork float. Works a lot like the gauge on a 500 gal fuel barrel if you've ever seen one of those.

I also have seen that aftermarket gauge used with Farmall H-M"s. Never could find out the maker either.

My CA has a brass 90 deg elbow soldered on the tank right side, at the bottom, and another elbow soldered on the side, at the top of the tank. There is a piece of clear plastic tubing running between the two elbows, with graduated red marks on the tubing to show gas level. Home made for sure, but effective.

We had one on the 1957 WD-45 that my father bought new from a dealer in St. Charles, Illinois. I drove the tractor a lot, and remember how the guage was built, but never saw one on another tractor. The guage was still on the tractor when it was sold at auction in the '70's. I did see a John Deere A or G with a similar guage, but it was made out of brass, with no glass parts.

I have one on mine, but need to work on the "Glass"..I cannot read it any more..!
It is all metal..been on it as long as I can remember...it was my Grandad's tractor..

I could take some pictures...
Maybe there is a name on it somewhere...
Working it HARD, it needed gas every 4 hours or so..3 tanks a day..(36 Gal.) Sun-up to 11:00 PM...pulling 4x14" or an Int #37 Disc, with 12' JD Harrow (Duals when on the disc..).
Ron..
