Transmission oil level in Yanmar 2GM

I posted in this in the general maint. thread earlier and then saw the diesel engine forum so I am re-posting this as it seems a more appropriate forum.

When checking the level of the transmission oil on Yanmar 2GM20F with KM2P transmission there is only one line on the dipstick. Is this the line to fill to or a minimum level?

The drawing in the manual was terrible and stated that there where min and max lines. Kind of confusing when you only see one line on the dipstick.

jray, I saw your original post and almost responded, but I couldn't give a definitive answer. I'll throw my somewhat hazy recollection in here to keep your thread warm until an absolute authority takes care of it.

I'm pretty sure that mark is the MAX, stupid though that is. The bottom of the plug serves as the MIN. I found the Yanmar manual confusing when I looked that up myself.

thanks for the replies! I kind of thought that would be the case. I am going to keep it at the mark for now.

Hey, that's right. I believe the book says to check the level by only placing the plug back in the hole--not screwing it back in. Or screw it in but expect it to be a bit higher.

Anyone know the part number for the KM2P dipstick and o-ring.
