Do all b43g oil pans for the 300 series have a fixed dipstick tube? I found one on eBay without the tube. I’ll buy it if I can use the p218 dipstick, thanks
All three? That's very interesting. I used a thin film of RTV around my tube when I installed it. Hopefully that prevents the leaking. Anything you can recommend to increase the longevity of my filter-side rod? There's a new gasket on the oil filter mount-to-block and the ring seal that comes with all oil filters. Plus the rubber seal that goes around the filter to the fan shroud.Hmmm interesting 🤔 I just put a b43g oil pan (or I have it ready, waiting on gasket) on a p218 and the dipstick tube is fixed permanently. I kind of like that design as almost all onans that have come through here had leaks from the dipstick tube gasket and massive oil everywhere. I found I have 3 blown p218’s and one b43, all engines threw a rod on the left (right as your on the tractor, oil filter side). To me that says just how important the oil filter seal is!
