At the Tri- County Heritage Club show this past weekend  in Ilderton Ontario; Allis Chalmers was the feature tractor.  Along with the usual triangle show plaque they gave out a custom fuel level checker to everyone who displayed any Allis equipment. Here is mine.

Really cool 😎. I remember my dad & grandpa taking a stick to measure fuel in old tractors before starting work for the day. This was back before dad carried a fuel barrel w/⛽️ So gasoline was carried to the field in  5 gallon cans, hoisted to the fuel tank, and poured into a screened funnel to refuel. No need to do it unless you could empty the full can.

A local author, Roger Welsch, has several books on tractor restoration. As he started out as a a newbie, folks warned him about making sure to clean out the fuel gauges in the tanks. What? WCs did not have a fuel gauge.
Then he starting finding sticks in the tanks, and figured it out!
Dad had a piece of strap iron with a crook on the end of it to hang on the throttle rod of our 2-cylinder Deere's for a gas guage.
