Honda NC50 OIL LEVEL SIGHT GLASS REMOVAL

Jacques Cato /

Can anyone please help me? How do I remove the oil level sight for cleaning?

I have stripped all the paint but need to clean the area around the sight glass.

You cant remove it without destroying it or so I found. You can replace it with non-stock parts. If you want I'll post some pictures on how I did it.

Tape it off and sand/ clean around it.

How long till it leaks and the glass is clouded.

Mine is a 79 and still works perfectly.

The best way to go about it is don't remove it at all...

Give me a day to write it up. Can't sit for more then a minute or two at a time. My back is in bad shape today.

Someone else found and used a sight glass with gasket from a kobota tractor.

I know this is an old thread but just wanted to freshen a little for anyone searching for a solution to the NC50 oil level sight replacement. I bought a .79 inch fluid level sight window from J.W. Winco, inc. and will be putting it in my tank as soon as its painted. I will update the post with pics when I have them.

Jamie Namock, when I look up JW Winco sightglass it gives an option for .79 (diameter 1) or .79 (diameter 2). Do you recall which one you purchased?

Re: Honda NC50 OIL LEVEL SIGHT GLASS REMOVAL

Were you able to repair your sight glass? I have not pulled mine out for fear of damaging more. Unable to find a schematic. Is it just pushed in like a grommet? The ones from JW Winco look light they might be threaded. Any insight would be appreciated.

Re: Honda NC50 OIL LEVEL SIGHT GLASS REMOVAL

Jaime, Did it work out all right? Are the sights from Winco compatible? How does it affix to the tank? Thanks.
