Default EZGO TXT Robin 295cc EH29C

Hi!

So I got a rebuild kit for my engine, took my engine out and replaced all the gaskets. I put the engine back in and tested. After a few hours of driving it around I noticed an oil leak. I figured I messed up something. Turns out the oil is leaking from the dipstick guide area and the overflow tube.

I don't know why it would leak from the overflow because it only has a little over 3/4 of oil in it.

Does anyone know how I can change the seal on the dipstick guide? Do I just pull the guide out or do I need to take the engine apart again.... :(

See image..

I don't recall my EH29 having an "overflow" tube. Maybe the crankcase vent hose? If so that usually has a place to be connected to the airbox.

Thanks for that info.

I just need to know if I can remove that dipstick guide to change the seal without taking the engine apart lol. On my lawmower, I just remove a screw and put it out. I guess I will try and see what happens.

Check here for manuals that might help with your question. I don't recall anything about dipstick tube seals from my reading though.

That tube next to the dipstick tube is for your pulse line to the fuel pump. The small rectangular plate next to the dipstick holds the PCV hose that hooks to your airbox.

Correct me if I'm wrong but doesnt the dip stick have a rubber grommet that seals it? On the Yamahas iv used black tape and rap it around once or twice on the rubber and that will seal it

I doubt that the dipstick tube is where the leak is. As far as i recall the tube is an interference fit into the crankcase and does not come out easily. The oil is most likely to be coming out of the pulse line spigot! Are you using a pulse fuel pump and if so, check the hose from this spigot to the pump for cracks/holes. If you are not using the pulse pump then this tube need to either be vented higher with a piece of hose or blanked off. If this is where the fault lies then it may also be indicating too much oil in the engine. Is your cart lifted and if it is, have you allowed for the engine being tipped back and showing less oil on the dipstick? It has been a while, so i cannot remember the actual quantity of oil needed for this engine but i think it may be around a quart (someone will correct me soon i am sure) In this scenario, when you refill the engine after a lift, you need to put the exactly correct amount of oil in and remark the dipstick with this new "full" level to prevent overfilling.

On a side note, i have worked on hundreds of these engines and never seen a pulse spigot or dipstick tube leak. It is usually either the pulse line cracked or the dipstick not sealing well in the guide tube. But having said that, leaks at these points suggest an issue elsewhere such as too much oil or too much crankcase pressure.

Hope this helps.
