Where is the dipstick

Recommended Posts

Kent
As you can see from this original brochuure photo showing the appropriate location (the frame cutout), it looks like there wasn't one. My B-210 has a replacement engine and it has about a 3" extension tube that brings the filler above the level of the frame, and it has a dipstick built in the cap. My Big Ten, in comparison, does not. Both hold the 2 quarts of oil, but it's certainly easier to put it in the newer engine with the extension tube... http://www.simpletractors.com/images/1968_ac/feature_11.jpg

I have a B/S 300421 in my b-112, after looking in B/S illustrated parts list, I can see a dipstick & pipe-oil filler mount around the front p.t.o. cover, but nothings on my engine, and by the bottom oil filler cap impossible to put the 2 quarts or 2.3liters of oil recommended, I am wrong or it was a options.

Some had a short 3"? pipe extension with a 1/8"? capped dip stick rod. It sounds you are refering to a later design tall tube dip stick with a curled handle that is slightly above the cylinder head - that was not used on your model. Is your engine original or has it been replaced? Some replacement engines required using the original sump to retain use of the original fill level. B&S illustrated parts list groups a lot of models together and if the type is not specified you usually go with the "defalut" or by matching the appropriate picture - but then you need to know what you are supposed to have.

Maintain the oil to near overflowing. They don't hold quite 2 qt. in my experience, which covers 25 years sellin', fixin' & ownen' 'em. Bill
