APE Dipstick
« on: August 01, 2017, 07:41:05 PM »
Hi folks one for the fiddlers be careful when checking your oil then removing the engine cover....because you might just snap the dip stick in the shaft. ....yes that was me.....did a 5 minute rant looking for something to kick.  Collected my thoughts then went to investigate luck would have it the tube is split and you are able to remove a 10mm nut and the tube is fitted with a rubber grommet allowing me to remove it and ensure it won't do any damage until I get a new one ordered. ....if it could happen to anyone it would happen to me !!!!

That made me smile... not at you loss or expense, but the quip to the sales staff who failed to get the joke. Glad it's fixed. No takeaways this weekend then...
