Clifford's part is definitely different from what I've got.  In fact, that looks like just what I need, too!

Clifford (or anyone), if you figure out the Kubota part number for that one, let me know, because I can use one myself.

Sam -- I'm sorry to say, this pretty much confirms it:  the one I've got will not work for you if you only have 5" above the valve cover.  But, clearly, there is one available that will.

As a side note, I had something that looked a lot like what Clifford has on my unit when I got it.  But is was a hokey home-made (or modified) affair, and it was poorly secured in the OEM dipstick hole with a big glop of silicone.  And it was partly mangled.  We tossed it, in favor of the OEM (short) dipstick which made a better seal with the sump, and gave a more accurate reading.  I bought the extension I now have in hopes that it would be a better-sealing, more accurate replacement for the hokey one we threw away, not realizing it would hit the top of the compartment.

I am a little embarrassed about the photos of my generator looks like a good spring cleaning is needed .
 I will keep looking till I find the parts number for you guys it wasn't very expensive if I remember right it was around 20 bucks for the tube and stick and 25 bucks for the remote drain with the hose and both were from a dealer in my travels ?. 



good luck

If I had the model and serial number of that engine,I could possibly answer some of your question. I am a Kubota dealer. The model and serial numbers are stamped into the engine block at the base of fuel injection pump where it bolts to engine.ex. d722-35607. Newer engine serial numbers have a letter . ex. d722-7w230.

Hi Big John,
My engine model # V1902-BG1, Serial # V1902-96003. The generator was bought by the previous owner on 8-12-91. I hope you can come up with a part number for an extended dipstick and tube, like Clifford's, from this information.  Thanks.

Clifford & Sean, thanks for posting pictures and for the advice you have both given.

RickB, thanks for the offer to come help. (I spoke to Rick this morning and explained why I declined his offer)

JohnEd, you are so right, what a group. I met Rick only once and he stepped up with such a generous offer. I know Gumpy a little better and he has also offered to help several times. It's nice to have such helpful people as them and everyone on this board.

Thanks everyone, Sam MC8

I also have a V1902-BG1, but I could not find the serial number anywhere.  I looked all around the injection pump, and everywhere else I could see.  It would be about the same vintage, ~1989 or so.

I couldn't find the serial number on the engine either. I got the serial number from the letter that Wrico sent to the original owner. That letter is in a binder along with the engine and generator head manuals. I feel fortunate to have as many documents as I have for the bus and conversion components. Unfortunately I don't have the manual for the engine and transmission. When we go to Dickinson, ND this summer I will contact the widow of the PO to see if she can find them.
Good luck, Sam MC8

Clifford,

I am really impressed with your remote drain, that makes changing your oil a snap. I want one hope you come up with the part #,s

Thanks

John, We have one on our Onan, only with a 12v solenoid attached to drain. It looks like just a piece of hydraulic hose with a fitting to replace the drain plug. It was set up by a PO, so I cant' take credit for the idea.
