I went to check the fluid in the transmission on my 1963 Series 62 convertible and when I pulled on the dipstick ring the whole tube came out. I got it back in the hole, sort of, but it is loose. Anyone else have similar issue and any tips on how to get it seated back in tight? I don't have a lift or an easy way to lift the car and safely get under it.
The oil dipstick tube bolts to the passenger side exhaust manifold. Did you see a metal tab on the tube with a bolt hole it in it?? If not, it may have broken off. There is also an o-ring inside the the transmission housing where the dipstick tube is inserted. If the o-ring is bad or missing and the tube is not bolted in properly, the transmission will leak like a sieve when the car is parked. Been there, done that.
