Guys,

Thanks for all the info.

Steve I have a 60' X 40' pole building that I hope to insulate one of these days, but work keeps getting in the way.

The fuel sender unit is on it's way now, so next week I'll get to start putting things back together.
I haven't done that much work, but I have learned a lot, and will know how to take better care this winter.

I too am very suspicious of additives for fuel that have all kinds of claims. Most people I know around here do add an anti gel additive to diesel equipment in the coldest part of the winter, especially early in the season. The reason I mentioned the standyne product is it was recommended by the local diesel injection service guy and I respect his experience and opinion.
On a related note I no longer believe in using any kind of additives in coolants or oils. In my previous job I had some experience with chemists developing additives and it seams each company develops a mixtures of anti oxidation chemicals that work well together but are not necessarily compatible with additives used by other companies.

I got the tractor back together yesterday and got it running.

The new fuel sender works very nicely that was 88 pounds well spent ($101 to me here in the US).

Had fuel running out on the floor of the shop, tightened up the filters and the bowl and all better now.

The hardest part of putting things back together was the 4 bolts that hold the fuel tank on. Wiggling the empty tank around while trying to get the threads started was a pain.

Anyway, Thanks to everyone who makes and contributes to this forum.

It really helped me.

Good to hear that you are up and running again. No matter what we tend to work on they all have their tricky bits to test us my last one was simply fitting the fan blade onto the hub while the radiator was in position. Easy you would thing but I forgot to clean the paint out of the threads didn't I. Well that's another lesson learnt.
