Westerbeke 30 B THREE and JS transmission

Hi All

I'm starting a new thread because the last one went in different directions. Though helpful, not definitive.

Plain and simple...The dipstick on the JS Transmission won't come out / off. I've used penetrant, pry bars, even a pipe wrench but still no luck in getting it loose.

If you have one of these transmissions on your boat, could you send a couple of pictures of the dipstick? Is it held in by O Rings, or does it screw in? Mine is located on the starboard side. Pics would be most helpful.

Thanks, Steve

Re: Westerbeke 30 B THREE and JS transmission

My boat is an hour away sitting for the winter so can't do a picture right now. I have 1990 vintage of that motor and transmission on my Sabre 34. The JS dipstick on mine just pulls up and out. It has an o-ring or two. It is not threaded.

I wish I could help as I have the exact same engine but with the Hurth transmission. I wish you'll find a solution.

Thanks guys

I met with success by applying heat.
First with a heat gun to lose the residual oil in the area, and then with a propane torch with a fire extinguisher at the ready. This was a slow process.
Indeed the stick has 2 o rings and is a pressure fit. I am able to use the dipstick by replacing the O rings with a slightly smaller size. It can be removed by hand
