I have a Kohler SP 27 hp engine on my ex zero turn mower.

Customer Question

I have a Kohler SP 27 hp engine on my ex mark zero turn mower. The dipstick handle broke as I pulled it to check oil level. Base of the plastic finger pull is still attached to metal shaft and is lodged in dipstick tube. How can I remove the bricked dipstick when I can't reach it nor get a hold of it?

What is the full model number of the engine? Typical Kohler engine has dipstick tube that screws into the block. Just unscrew the tube!

Usually there is a screw on bracket at top, that has to be removed to let tube turn.
