I need to do that to mine this lokar I got i hate it it is always coming up and leaking

Yeah, mine has the rubber bushing in the case, with the tube pushed into the bushing. Trouble is, the o-ring seal a the top of the tube is tighter than the bushing...so unless you tie that booger down, checking fluid level is at least a 2-handed deal...AND you run the risk of duplicating the topic of this thread.

But we did cause a 45 minute stoppage, when the dipstick tube decided to come out of the transmission case, while making a pass..
Lets put it this way, nothing from the transmission back will ever rust.

hmmm, 7 hours of driving, 45 gallons of diesel for 1 crappy pass........

I feel your pain made 2 outings last year 1st one was ok 3 passes the next one 1 pass oil line blew off on top end then found the oil problem after installing the heads I bought from you and has sit in the trailer until now just amybe in 3 weeks aia will get to make a few passes

Chin up, Mike...If your deal works out like mine did, you'll start stringing good passes together now. After my oildown I put together a string of Quick 8 finals. Cool

Better to wipe oil off the car than Mikey off the wall!!! We can relate with bad luck at the track, our last outing was a shorted out trans brake switch thus leaving us no reverse for round 1 in the heads up deal Sad it'll get better bubba!!
