Lance, here are pictures you requested on another forum of my closed side LGT 165 fuel tank.  Thought it would be easier for you to find here.  The tank on mine holds roughly 5 US gallons, maybe just shy.  I have never filled it from bone dry, I know I have put at least 4 gallons in it at the corner station and it had some in it to start.  It is 10" deep versus 6" deep for the 125 tank, but otherwise they are dimensionally the same.  I put the 3 gallon (I assume) tank on top for reference.

Well I found it so I guess it worked..lol

Are they plastic tanks??  On the '72-'76 models the tanks are steel... and sit above the engine instead of behind it like yours appears to.

 

If somebody can get an accurate volume measurement it should be sent to Peter at tractordata, info he has shows 7.6L(145) or 11.4L(165)

Closed side tanks are plastic.  Closed side engines have a fuel pump, as the bottom of my tank is lower than the carb.

I think only the 16 hp models use the fuel pump, my 10hp is gravity fed

I have an openside 165 that is gravity fed from a 3 gal(approx) tank, the earliest 165s may have only had a 2gal tank because the spark plug was further back on the engine by about an inch, doesnt leave room for the 3 gal.

Just to bring everyone into the conversation... we were dicussing the fuel tanks on another forum and I was surprised when Sprint said he had a 5 gal tank... according to tractor data the lgt 165 only had a 3 gal(open and closed sided).... so we may have stumbled upon an error... if we can find out exactly how much they hold we can let Peter know so he can update his info.

On my 165 closed side, I have a 5 gallon tank as well. and it runs to a fuel pump on the engine. The 145 that I have, has the smaller 3 gallon, but also ran to a fuel pump on the engine.

If ne1 has the manuals for the closed sided models you could check if the fuel tank volume is listed there.

Thx Kenny, Im gonna send a copy to Peter at tractordata, I 'think' he may have used the specs from the openside for all LGTs... perhaps simply due to a lack of input from a reliable source, he does a great job tho, exellent resource to have available.

Here's the manual if you need the whole thing. Thanks for taking time to set the record straight. I use that site often to get info, but see some lack of info. I'm sure it is due to not being able to find it all. Maybe he needs to become a member here and we can help him fill in some info!

Big job if he does it all himself, but he seems dedicated, Ive sent him a correction in the past and it didnt take long till it was fixed.

 

So I sent the pic with an email, Hope he doesnt think Im just pickin apart his site and complaining too much...lol

Me too! But, if it is correct info, he should be happy to have it. I can imagine the time he has put into what he has so far. His site can be a big help to folks and kudos to him for making it what it is.
