Hydraulic fluid reservoir cap????

The guys at Speedco, went to check my hydraulic fluid level, and unscrewed the cap on the reservoir...the dipstick fell to the bottom of the reservoir..

Does anyone know where I can get a replacement or who the manufacturer or what the part number is for the reservoir cap/dipstick assembly?

Thanks in advance

Are we talking the big rexervoir in the engine compartment or the HWH reservior in the HWH bay?

If it's the big one in the engine bay, it's not listed in my owners manual. I am going to assume, there is no data tag on it that is readable. Hope someone else has this information.

This may sound crazy, but if all else fails, I would drill a couple small holes in the cap and then pop-rivet or otherwise connect a home-built dip stick to it. Maybe build a small t-shaped (or L-shaped) metal strip so the top of the T is connected to the underside of the cap. Scratch a few reference marks on it. All you need to know is if you are a bit low. I'd do it, why not?

Reservoir is built by Nelson, same outfit that makes the filters that go inside the tank. Don't know how to find the company itself, but you can probably get a link, 800# or something by contacting hydraulics shops and telling them your story.

I wonder if this is an aging problem; maybe the dipstick needs to be tightened very few years? or refastened?
