The oil dip stick IS on the port side on Kubota engines. That hole was simply plugged and the port side standard dipstick installed on the boat engines. A friend of mine bought a used M25 (same as the XP except for a few details and a D850 block) and considered using the port side for his Pearson 30-something.

The marinized version only adds the HX - not a big deal

Buy Kubota, save mucho $$.
