Re: Honda 2hp oil leak

Has anyone replaced or repaired the sight glass AKA oil level inspection window?

Those sight glasses are a pita. the reflective backing gets dirty and makes it impossible to see the oil level. If you can get it off you might try washing it out with some solvent.

Re: Honda 2hp Oil Leak

I know on mine, after changing the oil I could not see the oil level in the site glass. I know i put oil in it and I drained it again and refilled it. Still no oil on the site glass.
I think the oil is too clean to see, after further inspection with an LED light, I could see the oil level. FWIW
