I have a 1978 Albin Vega powered by a Volvo MD7A. I removed the reverse gear oil filler bolt to find No dipstick! Has anyone else had this experience?
Could the dipstick have slipped down into the transmission?

Thanks

Yes. we had the same engine. The dipstick was that filler bolt! You will be able to pull it apart or possible a magnetic flexible stick. I cant remember if it was iron or brass??
Good Luck. The old 'green death' wins another point.
