I want to endorse a product that I have been happy with and assure you that I have NOTHING tied to the product or company that I bought it from expect for a pleasant experience.
Many of you with Yanmar
transmissions will likely have experienced their plastic dipstick cap getting stripped with routine use. It's a poor design which Yanmar
should have fixed themselves but I guess they would rather that we have to replace the dipstick every few years at great cost.
A couple of weeks ago, I bought a replacement dipstick cap from Bobatkins - a contact that I found here on the Cruisers Forum.
His replacement cap isn't cheap
but I'm sure that it will last forever. I'm no longer scared that my cap might strip completely and leave me with an engine
room full of transmission
fluid at the worst possible time!
was quick and I received the replacement part 3 days after ordering. The part fit perfectly and has a nice, snug fit.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend getting a replacement part if your dipstick is starting to strip.
