Hi, just a simple question. I am not experienced with this brand of motor and I wanted to know about checking the oil level. Do you check the level with dipstick screwed in, or is it checked unscrewed at the top of the thread?
I just want to make sure.
Thanks for your help,
Mark

To check the oil level screw the dip stick back in to get the correct reading.

The operators/workshop manual is in the parts list and manuals area of the forum which covers all the information. cheers2

Hi Jazz, Just a tip, it's always good practice to have the machine on level ground when checking the oil, if even on a a slight slope, an incorrect reading will result. wink
