No, the Ford Tractors hold 10 gallons total. All the Manuals state this. The Sediment Bulb has a MAIN and a 1 gallon RESERVE function. Open 2 Turns for MAIN, FULL OPEN for the 1 Gallon Reserve. Supposedly. That is the way the valve and screened fuel inlet up inside were designed to function. I don't even muck with the Mason jar and stopwatch anymore. When I do a fuel flow test on a guys' carb, I simply test the fuel line first, then if it passes, test the drain plug. Either way, if flow sputters, stops and goes, or quits, you have your answer. Fuel obstruction is upstream at tank or sediment bulb or downstream at the carb. I figured JMOR or Bruce(VA) devised the 1 Pint/2 Minute Rule. Fuel system has THREE filters engineered into system. There is no need to add any more external modern type filters. They serve relatively no practical purpose and only get in the way and become a hazard, in my opinion, but it's your tractor and your money.
