OK, this might belong in another forum, but it's on a WH, so here goes.
My WH Raider 10, with Tec. HH 100. she's sat since last Sept 2015.
I drained the gas out today to refill with fresh gas and stabil additive.
Before I started her, checked the oil and the dipstick looked like this...
this was AFTER I wiped the stick with a rag. The shiny part of the
dipstick was gone, right at the oil level. The oil looked still looked clean, changed last fall,
only a few minutes on it , no more than 1/2 hour. No smell of gas in oil
fuel shut off was closed.
I had Penzoil straight 30 wgt in it.
Any ideas what took off the shiny from the dipstick?
Now I'm wondering what the inside of the engine looks like!
