So obviously it's not a tractor engine but it is an irrigation pump so it sorta fits this section. I have a perkins t6.3544 engine running a water pump, it runs fine overall but I have an oil loss problem that I just found whare I'm losing the oil. The oil is coming out the dipstick! Not like gushing out or anything but it has no seal and I think it's the submerged dipstick tube setup so any little bit if crank case pressure on this older engine caused the oil to slowly run down the side of the dip stick. The crank vent tube is working fine and it have maybe a tiny but extra blown but nothing crazy. I can take the oil fill cap off when it's running and not get anything more than a slight haze no real pressure but the dipstick loses oil. It seems to be when it goes past 2100 rpm that It gets the pressure to push it out the stick. We had the valve guides repaired over the winter because it was actually burning oil but now it just loses oil out the dipstick. I have been confused for weeks whare my oil was going and I just noticed it running down the dipstick a little and thus why It is ending up in the spot I do see it. So question is what can I do to fix this? Can I seal the dipstick so it still pulls out but will keep oil from pushing out? Some way or another? Or just deal with it.... thanks!
