This model ( 1693379) has a sight glass on the seat deck front that is unfortunately missing. I can't even tell how it was hooked up the tank itself once I removed the deck. I'm painting it as we speak.
The way the tank is designed doesn't allow for one to see how truly full the tank is when it gets down past the narrow section of the tank... which conforms to the wheel fender.
I looked up part diagrams for the indicator, and while the parts for the seat deck group are all itemized by number, they don't give a reference part number to that number. Besco(sp) is one site where the sight glass is number 40, but that isn't the actual part number.
Like to know if this part is obtainable, and if so how is it connected to the tank? If it is not obtainable, will a fuel cap gauge work with the design of my tank? Like I said the tanks larger area is directly under the seat while the narrow sections are over the wheel fenders. I'd almost have to have a
gauge with 2 bends in it to get to the bottom of the tank. Thanks for any
help. I could just let it run low on gas or out, before filling again, but I don't want to do that if I don't have to.:confused:

(40) Simplicity Part# 1719780 (replaces 1719780SM) EXTRUSION, Sight GaugeYour price: $4.88

Hose #7 runs behind the glass (sight gauge) and connects to the tank in two places. As the fuel level falls in the tank it also falls in the hose.

So along with part #40 sight gauge your probably going to need #7 hose, two #8 clamps, two #10 bushings, two #11 fittings to rebuild it back to the original setup.
