1980 oil peep sight filled in

Postby liemsdad4130 » Wed Feb 26, 2014 9:50 pm



I purchased a 1980 GLO 100 and a lot of things have been done to it. One of which I just found tonight. The peep sight for the oil is filled in with some sort of black epoxy. Other then the fact I cannot see the level, will this pose a problem???

If it does not leak and you do not mind not knowing if your oil level is too low or too high, then there is no problem. Use the search feature to look for "gl1100 oil dip stick" . You can either buy one or like many of us did, you can make your own. 8-)

Well the nice thing is I already have a dipstick. I just needed to know if this hole would create an issue. Thank you.

If you have a dipstick you should be ok then, it was just a sight glass to see the oil level. 8-)
