    need advice on intake manifold

    So i have RXT is 260 and put it all back together and realized that the dip stick is not sitting right in the manifold

    any tips on what tools i can use to take it off while top deck is still on just to lean it back a bit to seat the dip stick

    I do believe it still has a seal as i rode it that way and no spillage

    I dont want to take top deck off to just seat dip stick proper

    There are 2 o rings at the bottom of the dip stick that MUST be installed correctly or you will have a huge oil leak.

    Additionally, if the intake manifold is not installed flush with the head, you will have a boost leak.

    I would loosen all intake manifold bolts & align the dip stick correctly. What ever it takes to get it done, is required!

    John are fully right, but buddy´s who doesn´t have a IS or AS cannot feel with you...

    It is not necessary to push the dip stick in the end of the hole.
    See my pics. 1. too high 2. too deep 3.right pos.

    Does this help? Get this right and the lower part of the dip stick tube will be positioned correctly! You should be able to do this without jacking with the top deck.
