Here is an idea

Postby rexxon » Sun Oct 22, 2017 5:33 pm

OK, It seems like folks would like to have gas/fuel gauges on old Farmalls, What can't someone make an adapter that would twist onto the filler neck of Farmall gas tanks with the gasket and two tab twist on bottom and the threaded type on top like the snow mobile they make tons of different lengths of those so you could find one to fit any tank depth. But the great thing is one adapter would fit all Farmall tractors.

I don't have the resources to make anything just a lot of time driving up and down the road thinking

I guess a gas gauge may be handy, but I just keep mine full to reduce rusting in the tank, and that way they are always ready for use. Our antique tractor club was in a Christmas parade one time and one of the members ran out of gas and had to be towed back to the starting point. Embarrassing thing was that he had the only tractor in the parade with a gas gauge. :D

I have a home made stick from measurements for a cub obtained on this board as well as several cut off wooden boom sticks. Usage is fast and easy and part of my pre engine start up checks.

I have several riding lawn mowers with gas gauges in the gas caps. Gauges no longer work. Back to the sticks for measuring fuel level.
I have an excuse. CRS.

Sounds like my garden tractor.

Or, you could drill a hole in the fuel cap and use a wire with a a cork on the end like what is used on another cub I use, a J3 Piper Cub that is.

That would be the only real difference between the two cubs fuel systems, the one with the wings has a fuel tank sump drain.

I’ve got one of them.
That was Rick Prentise when he had “Cub Kraft” in business.
He had a bunch of other cool stuff too.

My super m was converted to gasoline by my grand dad years ago. He left the lp tank on it which also had a gauge. It still works too. Very handy.

Is the stick just clear coated so the numbering doesn't come off?

Well, it could be argued that the one without wings does too. It just doesn't have a separate drain. I had to do it yesterday. I took the fuel line loose from the carb, opened the valve to the settling bowl under the tank and let it drain into a bucket.

But who's arguing

But I do like the Piper Cub fuel float idea.
