Strictly Diesel offers a repair kit that can address dipstick adapter leaks on International T444E engines, according to the company.
Strictly Diesel officials said that the dipstick adapter repair kit can fix those types of leaks even when the interior piece has been warped from being overtightened.
While Strictly Diesel is a light duty diesel shop, it can supply the dipstick adapter repair kit to school bus shops that service T444E engines.
The repair kit eliminates the stock dipstick adapter, replacing it with a new machined aluminum adapter that features a double O-ring seal on the outside of the oil pan. The kit can be installed with the oil pan still on the engine, and the engine still in the vehicle.
