And then there is the issue of how to install it into a tank if you try to use your current tank. You will have to cut a hole in the top of your tank and install the sending unit and then make sure that it does not impact the seat/fender. If it were me for the meager benefit that an electric gauge would offer, I would buy the screw-on cap style and call it a day.
Clean the back of the tractor where you can see the level of fuel in the gas tank.
