Have you noticed how easily your boot heel will catch and pull the dipstick out. Clear out so you have to go looking for it. I would imagine that that is also what breaks the blade of the dipstick. I discovered my no 12s were responsible for hooking and pulling out the dipstick on my 8n. I fabricated a bracket that surrounds the dipstick and used the bolts that keep the round cover on to hold the bracket on. Now I don't have to worry that my heel will catch it and pull it out or break it off.
