What else would cause oil to blow out the dipstick tube?

Arthur- I'll check wth JP Tractor Salvage for thiers. If that doesn't work, I'll have to get on fleabay.
Harold R- The fact that you have a short tube, no disc and no oil leaking may be a bad sign for me. I'm really hoping it isn't blowby since I just put the cub back together. The cylinders were within spec for .040 over. I replaced the rings. It used to smoke quite nicely, haha, out the stack but since back together, it stopped smoking. My oil is right at the FULL line. I think if the tube were pushed in too far, it would be underfilled with oil at the FULL mark. Could it be that the tube wasn't pushed all of the way in? I didn't have the oil filler tube out so don't have any idea how far it is supposed to be pressed.
Here is how I'll proceed: Go ahead and get a proper dip stick with the disc. In the meantime, I'm goign to run the cub without the dip stick and see if oil is being thrown out and also maybe get some read on blowby. If getting thrown out, I'll try draining some of the oil. If that doens't do it, I'll have to live with oil running all over the blade and dripping in the garage after working it. Maybe a big cork to replace the dip stick? The tube from the crankcase to the air cleaner should handle a reasonable amount of blowby, right?
Thanks again for all of the help.
