The stick part was probably a plastic rectangle about 1/16" x 3/16".
TIP: If you have one of these, CAREFULLY pull the dipstick straight up! Don't bend it!
RESULT: Cost $157. for small engine place to tear down the engine (had to remove camshaft) and retrieve the dipstick piece. Dipstick cost $3.24.
WHY? Did the stupid Kohler people put a fragile PLASTIC dipstick in? Can't imagine that a spring steel dipstick would cost so much as to prevent sales of the riding mower...duh! The replacement dipstick was a little more sturdy, but not much.
