What do I do?
I don't know the Volvo
gearbox, but I did recover a Kanzaki
(Yanmar) gearbox dipstick; that too is plastic but a substantial and hard bit of plastic. It was on a 2GM
, or possibly 3GM motor
and fairly straight forward - done before lunchtime:
Disconnect the shaft - pop the gearbox off the back of the motor
- invert and shake around until the dipstick appears at the filler/dipstick hole - grab with fine nosed pliers and manouevre until it comes out - re-fit gearbox - reconnect shaft - check gear-change cable's properly adjusted - go for a beer
paid for by whomever dropped it in there in the first place.
