Fuel gage sending unit is in the top of fuel tank with filler tube attached if tractor has a cab.
It is not easy to get too ..I am not sure that the cab floor has an access plate over it or not. If it does that will make it easy to access. If not you will need to lift the cab up .

the sender unit is a 'potentiometer' and can subsequently break down as a dead short( like earthing the wire down to the chassis) or open circuit so no gauge reading!
