I am pretty sure that is normal. I don't know the exact reasoning behind it. There should be another dipstick on the drivers side front of the motor if I am not mistaken to actually check the oil level.
I think it has something to do with using the same block as a smaller Kohler but the normal dipstick doesn't clear the crank. Hopefully someone else can pitch in to give a better idea as to the reasoning for it.

George, he's speaking of the rod dipper that lubes the engine being broken off the rod cap. I had that happen with a K341 on my Allis 416. Luckily I felt the engine binding & shut her down pronto. I didn't toss the rod. My dipper hadn't touched anything on it's tip, and not sure why it happened. I do think I had my governor set too high an rpm though. Since then I bought a "Vibratach" to set my engine speed.
Wow talk about misreading a post LOL. Don't mind the penguin, will go back to my igloo
