Dipstick Replacement

Only the one my son made in metal shop. The ones I made differed slightly from the ones shown here. (finish wasn't as nice, for one thing) I left out most of the shank portion between the knob and the flange, and the knob was a 14mm hex with flutes cut on the flats. That allowed it to accept a wrench as well as fingers if needed.

Junior ran out of time and decided to knurl his:

Any possibility of posting a pic of one of your dipsticks?

hmmmmmmmmmm:smirk:

That's the same dipstick breather hose you have on yours. :banana:

Is that Trona dirt or Johnson Valley?

Those are both nice looking knobs. I will give it a go. Threads look like 10 x 1.5. Thanks for the pic.

If you're asking me, it's from somewhere in San Diego/Imperial County. Can't recall where.
