Thank You Gentlemen,
I appreciate your comments! I started this project wanting to share my progress I've hit some hard spots that this forum has helped me with.
This old girl had been used with everything close to wore out.I have been lucky to find used parts & new parts and lot of help with manufacture and machine work.
I am getting excited to hear it run and drive it.Last I drove a utn was in 1954 I was 9 yrs old
Tony

Dalex,
Yes, its called a roto gauge.
as percentage numbers around edge and you open small vent in center and turn lever till it begins spilling fuel and that tells you how much fuel in tank.
