I have a serious gas gauge leak on my D15 series. It is coming
from the gasket. Was wondering if float is attached to gauge and
how much trouble would it be to get out. I could make a gasket,
but would be easier if I could use a form a gasket sealer. Anybody
had this problem before.

That is a mechanical assembly that all comes out in one piece. No Problem. Just have to turn as necessary as you remove it- it will be obvious.

Be aware many "gaskets in a tube" won't hold up in gas exposure.

It is supposed to have a rubber seal, like and "O" ring but square.
Try Agco.

I just replaced mine on a D17. I got some gasket material from NAPA and made mine own.My son also told me that "gasket maker" out of a tube, does not work when exposed to gasoline.

The proper gasket is cheap and easy. No point doing it twice.

Put a little gas-resistant sealant on the screws that hold the sender to the tank before you put 'em back in.

Thanks everyone who replied. Got tractor gas leak fixed yesterday.
It had a rubber O ring in it that was almost completely gone. Found
an old guy who works on old tractors, he gave me a rubber wring and also
made a square gasket out of gasket material. Problem solved until next one.

The D15 is a great tractor. We love ours. Glad you got the issue fixed. Most problems on a D15 are fairly easy to fix.
