Is there any kind of seal under the dipstick tube on a Kohler K301? Mine is loose where it goes into the block. It doesn't pull out of the block when I pull the dipstick out, so it's not that loose, It just has some play where it goes into the block. Is this normal? The engine is in a Cub Cadet 123 (but I don't think it's the original engine that came in it). Thanks.

I think that is pretty much the norm on them. I've had a couple with the cam cover dipstick and they were a little on the wobbly side but never leaked so I never gave it to much thought.

Thanks. I mainly wanted to make sure I wouldn't be letting dust in, though I wouldn't want it to leak a bunch of oil either.

You are right about your power plant change. Obviously someone ground on the frame rail to allow room for the cam/dip stick cover. Should be a tube/dip stick on the other side of the block next to the cylinder near your gen/start. But hey...keep workin "ol yeller" blowing "Kohler smoke"!!!

Hmm! New one to me. OUT the cam cover?? Never saw one before. AND, where is the fuel pump? Now gravity feed fuel? One's I have seen have the long tubes out other side or just in the oil base pans of diff configs. Bet one of these would be very hard to find IF you really needed one!
