A word of personal experience, and again probably stupid experience gained here, but don't wear anything you don't want oil on. I managed to get an oil smear down the front of my shorts...looked like I peed myself. Doh!!

Yep. Worse part was the "dribble" makes makes it look authentic...and there is no defense when friends start pointing and laughing. Um, yeah. I saw your engine and I guess I got excited. Seriously it was oil you diptards! Even knowing the truth, they still laughed and pointed.

1: Remove the one bolt attaching it to the head.

2: Pull hard.

3: Oil the o-ring on the new dipstick and install.
A new entry for the how-to library? lol...

I remember saying, "that can't be all that holds it in," when I swapped to the SVT one on my ZX3.
