I don't know the lenght off hand , but do know that Bobcat has changed the dip stick on several models recently , and it takes 2 quarts out the engine with the new stick , I was told it was shortened because the crank was too deep in the oil and causing problem -------the fuel tank plug is a rubber grommet with a steel plug that pushes into the rubber , it looks like a bullet and it is under the cover that has 3 bolts holding it under the engine compartment

Fishfiles Thank you again for your information I left my dipstick handle against my fuel pump hose and the crankshaft ate it

skidsteer.ca Thanks Ken you guys are so helpfull.You really save a guy a lot of troubles.
There is a retro fit for the eating up the dip stick thingy , I seen that a lot , I have beat them back to shape with good results , you have to go down into the block at the right angle or it hooks the crank , sometimes it will get so eatin' up it's hard to get out without breaking it , there is another guide which drives into the block for the dip stick which is suppose to eiminate that problem , had intsalled a few, I don't know if yours is a canadate for it or not , try calling the dealer and asking about it , any time I can help I am glad too , I enjoy my job
