CC 782 Gas Gauge

Thu Nov 21, 2013 12:38 pm

My tractor has a gas gauge that is integral with the gas cap. However, the clear plastic cover has severe crazing (multitude of small cracks), which makes it difficult to read the gauge. I could live with this but the cover keeps popping out of the gas cap.

Is there a replacement for this clear plastic cover available?

I see that there are complete gas gauge assemblies available for my tractor. Any recommendations?

Cub Cadet 782 gas gauge parts diagram/number here: http://www.partstree.com/parts/?lc=cub_ ... 0028600031

Can't remember where I bought mine, but was the same as this one on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss? ... as%20gauge

Fit perfect. The dial face is different, which I didn't like, but at least I could read it thru clear plastic (mine had hazed over).

Hope this helps.

P.S. WARNING: A new gas gauge will not necessarily cause fuel consumption to decrease, you'll just be able to clearly see how fast it goes down. :lol:

Just seen this post. I don't know for sure if it will work but you might check the lenz out of one of thoes cheap plastic D-cell flashlights. They just might be about the same size.
