 +These pics show how the oil cap comes apart. \\
 +Here is what you have when you flip it over and clean it up. \\
 +
 +With the C-clip removed, hold the round end that the dipstick comes out of. \\
 +Turn the wing nut counter clockwise to unscrew it from the rest of the assembly. \\
 +The lower section will slide to the side and then lift out one side at a time. \\ 
 +This is not necessary to replace the gasket or the O-ring but it may be for something more in depth. \\

 +|Right against the cap you have a C-clip. Pull it out.|  Unscrew the dipstick from the cap.  ||

 +There is an O-ring at the top of the shaft between the cap and the wing nut. \\
 +If it's flattened, it may cause an oil leak on the top of my tank. \\
 +
 +|Check the O-ring.|This one was replaced with one from an Evo head rebuild (bigger O-ring). \\ The inside diameter was a little big but it fit inside the groove and was thick enough to seat against the cap.||
