2007 Push Rod & Oil Capacity Questions.

It looks like the wider push rod on the clutch side comes in 4 parts Numbers 14 15 16 17. Does it assemble easily with the clip or something? Also the oil capacity in the manual calls for 1 L w/ a filter change or 1.03 quarts, right? I put a full quart in and its not even on the stick yet? Am I missing something? Thanks for any help.

If you have a dip stick fill it tell it's in the safe zone or at least a quater inch on the stick.

Did you start it after you filled it, before you checked the oil level?  If not, then yes, you're missing something. 

 

You fill the oil by pouring it into the crankcase, but that's not where the dip stick is. It's in the "oil tank", a separated reservoir where the oil is kept during operation.  Fill it, start it and run it for 30-60 seconds and shut it off.  Wait 10 seconds or so and pull the stick, wipe it re-insert it to the threads and read it.

As far as the push rod assembly, yes, it's quite simple.
