"I ordered a new oil dip tube and rubber cushion for a 1995 tamd41p-a. The tube has a white mark on it,about 1/2 inch from the end of the tube. The tube is also about 1 inch shorter than the original tube. My question: What is the purpose of the white mark? Is it to mark how far the tube goes into the rubber cushion? The supplier of the parts assures me these are the correct parts. It seems to me that the placement of the tube is critical, as this controls the accuracy of the oil dip stick.
Help is much appreciated, Mike"
