Hi, I've tried to pull the oil level stick/dipstick out but its pretty firm. Does it unscrew or is it simply friction fit? Should I just pull harder? It just that things are flexing with the force I'm using already.
It helps to rotate it a coulpe of times then rotate as you are pulling up, there are only rubber o-rings holding it in place. Once you get it out ,apply some lithium grease to the o-rings. AND check the oil level with the engine up to temp and at idle. Hope this helps.
Ok thanks, I found a diagram of the engine and noticed the 2 O rings. Its certainly a tight fit, the pipe was bending as I was trying to pull it up, for this reason I wondered if I was missing something.
