Worst . Dipstick . Ever . . .
30+ years of various vehicles, lawn mowers, 3 wheelers, cycles, manufacturers, etc..
Never have I experienced such a worthless dipstick.
I may be over full or may be 3qts low, who knows. The damn thing repels oil so half the stick is clean from lo to hi.
I have tried several methods to get a clean reading with no success.
I am thinking about roughing it up with 100grit so the oil sticks to it.
Maybe it's just mine, anyone else experience this?
The tranny dipstick works like a dream, no ambiguity what so ever, not sure why that is so myterious to some what with the careful measuring of what was drained out.
End rant lol
