Default 149 Oil Dipstick Bent?

Is this dipstick supposed to be bent like this, or should it be straight? It is kind of hard to tell in the pictures, but it is bent at the top, and in the middle. I don't know if this is normal or not.

I don't think the bow in the middle area is anything to be worried about. The bend at the top should be straight. That's what my 149 is.

Thanks! Could that hurt anything with it being bent like that other than not getting an accurate reading on the amount of oil?

Just bend the damn thing straight again. It's not fussy.

Cub Cadet is a premium line of outdoor power equipment, established in 1961 as part of International Harvester. During the 1960s, IH initiated an entirely new line of lawn and garden equipment aimed at the owners rural homes with large yards and private gardens. There were a wide variety of Cub Cadet branded and after-market attachments available; including mowers, blades, snow blowers, front loaders, plows, carts, etc. Cub Cadet advertising at that time harped on their thorough testing by "boys - acknowledged by many as the world's worst destructive force!". Cub Cadets became known for their dependability and rugged construction.

MTD Products, Inc. of Cleveland, Ohio purchased the Cub Cadet brand from International Harvester in 1981. Cub Cadet was held as a wholly owned subsidiary for many years following this acquisition, which allowed them to operate independently. Recently, MTD has taken a more aggressive role and integrated Cub Cadet into its other lines of power equipment.
