The stopper is very near it's at rest / sealed position when in the transmission - the end of the tape could/should have been nearer the underside of the top of the stopper top, which would put the
measurement closer to 4 1/2"

Overall length of the Dip Stick

Checking the fluid level, and I quote:

"Let the trans/ engine get to operating temp, then have someone ready by the dipstick, shut the motor down, and have that person immediately pull the dipstick clean it then put it back in and check it. This has to be done as quick as possible because the fluid will flow back into the trans from the oil cooler and lines.

Add fluid and repeat till its right. Then let the boat sit overnite, pull the dipstick, and note where it is cold, you can then file a small mark onto the stick and that will be your cold level."

Not so sure about filing a mark on the dipstick, wouldn't do to compromise it's integrety
Thanks, great info!
