Mike, I have the same engine (well almost, 4JH4-TE) and gearbox as you in my 331. Although I don’t have my manuals with me in UK (Sonatina is in southern Italy), from experience I can confirm John Crump’s advice. By the way, the small hole near the top of the dip stick is a breather hole to allow air out when you push the dipstick in; nothing to do with checking the oil level. To obtain advice on a new dip stick I suggest contacting E P Barrus Ltd customer service desk as they are the main importers of Yanmar/Kanzak equipment. Yours, Andrew Bell
