Length of Dipstick for Dual High?

Post by dhetch » June 7th, 2018, 6:48 pm

Does anybody have a dipstick from a dual high that you can measure from where it sits in the cap down to the full mark or full range? I don't have one accessible and I need to check the lube level.
Thanks,
Dave

I've got two and they both measure 8.5 inches from where it sits on the cap to the "full" line.

Cheers!
