Hi Guys ... I'm new to the group and using an E-81 on the nose of my airplane.


I'm trying to find out if the dip stick and oil filler neck from other Sub models will fit the E-81? I'm not really concerned about the length or curve of the neck as I'll have to modify it to work on the plane anyway.


Thanks for the input


Eric :huh:

hate to say it, but you'll prolly be doing custom work.  as for the dipstick, drain the oil, dump in 4.5 quarts and that will be your "F" mark on the stick.  


The filler neck, its gonna come down to OD/ID sizes.  Subaru was fairly good on generalizing their parts, a filler neck off a EJ25D might work for ya if the diameters of the holes are the same.

The mating surface on the block is the problem with the oil filler neck.  At a minimum you will have to use that flange from the original.  As far as the dipstick that should be pretty easy to adapt.  The turbo model has a different direction to it that might work for the shape you need but goes into the block the same way.

Not a realistic option when you need to check the oil level during pre-flight checks.
