Ford LGT Gas Tank
Posted August 24, 2011 - 03:47 AM
The Service manual for the closed side 165 (the only Service manual I could find) says 5 gallons, but I don't believe that is true,'cause there's no way that I can get 5 gallons of fuel into my 1976 LGT 165.
There is the possibility that the previous owner replaced the tank with something else, but the hood fits correctly, so I'm confused.
The reason I ask is that I recently purchased a new fuel tank cap with gauge from New Holland (my parts maual says JAC-158866) @ $40 and it does not read correctly.

P.S. I uploaded a Jake GT 16 manual for the 53330 tractor. It says the fuel tank is 3 gallons. May be the same tank as yours. I haven't found an owners manual for the open side models as yet.

I think you are correct. I never run the tank completely dry and can only get about 2 gallons into it at a time.
So, I guess that I got the wrong tank cap/gauge. But I've figured out how to gauge it so that I don't run out of fuel.
Guess I'm stuck with what I've got for now, but it's better than nothing.
Thanks for the help.

Yes, mine is the 3335 model. Could be that the PO changed out the tank from a 125 or 145.
Mine is the steel tank, so I'm guessing that whatever tank I have is from an open sided model.
Anyways, I was just curious.
Thanks guys for your help
