Dipstick possibly

Featured Posts

Removed the crank case side plate to drain the remaining oil from the sump 

where this bolt is screwed on could this be a dipstick holder

And that's almost certainly an industrial door. Notice the bolts to mount a filter

As you know the engine in question is a Lister sr2 marine 

is this the correct side plate for it 

it fits perfectly well 

I acquired a small dipstick from sleeman/hawken maybe see if it fits 

allthough quite sure that Richard said it was for cement mixer/dumper 

sure there is a couple of pics of it in another thread I made entitled oil dipstick/dipstick 

thanks for your help once again mr bizzard

The door has been drilled and a brass plug fitted, meaning you probably won't be able to fit the sleeve to the door for the dipstick

 

It's probably a door for an SR2, not a marine SR2

 

I don't have my dipstick identifier handy to say if a #6 is the correct one

 

Would you like me to check if we have an SR2 door with an intact dipstick tube?

A world class car maker supplied my research department with their latest design of I.C. engine, brand new and complete but dry.

When fitted onto our state of the art dynomometer rig it lasted all of two minutes before siezing solid.

It turned  out that some plonker had factory fitted the wrong dipstick so when we commisioned the engine it didn't have anywhere near enough oil in it despite what the dipstick said!

 

So if you decide to fit a dipstick make sure you have the right quantity of oil in the engine first and only then mark your shiny new dipstick with the correct level.

That would be very much appreciated Richard

to the left of the cap 

thank you for your help

The safe way to make sure you have the right dipstick is to drain all the oil out and refill with te correct amount, SR2 is about 9 pints, and then see if the dipstick registers correctly.

Copper rod? You need steel rod, 1/8'' welding rod works well.

You might be in luck @Roxylass. I had a search the other day and found only simple door. Yesterday, I stumbled across this:

 

door1.jpg

 

door2.jpg

 

It's a brand new two cylinder crankcase door, it would need dressing up because it is a machined casting only. No studs, oil filler (or blank), fuel pump guide or threaded oil filter tube

I don't know if I have the internal oil pipes for the filter, I do have a blanking plate
