Caution! Caution! with Journey genset dip stick

Checking oil in 05 journey 7500 Onan genset, when I pulled the dip stick out the 4" yellow tip just fell off on the ground. It is just glued on. I used JB weld and glued it back but not sure if I trust it in that hot oil? Any suggestion??Don't want to thing about what I would have to do if it comes off in the motor???

asheville: Thanks for the entry, just checked mine and the yellow tip appears to be on tight. Good topic.

I think I would take that dipstick to my local Onan/Cummins dealer and see if they'd like to give me a new one .

It should be a one piece dipstick. The replacement is about $10. Careful with the threads on the dipstick, they are easy to strip. Don't ask me how I know.

Mine is not a one piece dip stick, it is a metal wire with yellow plastic depth gauge glued onto the end. I had just added the correct amt of oil yet the sticked showed over fill, what had happened was the plastic had sliped down about 1/2 inch, then came off on my last attempt to ck the level
