    Default Older Fuel Cap

    I've been thinking of trying to find a Fuel Cap with a gauge for my old L235 (1983). I use a dowel now to check level, works, but thought about how nice it would be to know by just looking at the cap.

    Has anyone else had a similar thought and if so, were you successful and where did you find a source.

    My John Deere 332 diesel mower has that type of cap and 6 gallon fuel tank. It might work for you.
    How deep is your tank?

    The tank is 13" from the bottom of the spout. That doesn't appear to be an issue. The cap appears to be real close to 2.25" diameter (about 56mm). The challenge is whether any 2.25" cap might fit the thread pattern of a foreign machine.
