We have a Trans dip stick like this at work on one of the Log handler,the tube is real long and has a Bend in it,The Dip stick is around 6' No joke,the guys more often than not look at the wrong side,that being the side thats rubbing on the tube and get oil were it really isn't...
like said look at both sides of the dip stick and go with the low side,it will be the correct side...
far as seeing the oil on the stick it's self... Flat black paint will make a huge difference,and after a few oil changes the oil will not be clear even after just being changes....You never get 100% of the old Oil out ,unless you rebuild the motor LOL
the old oil will tint the new oil to a point you can see it...just put the correct amount in it and run the motor,maybe check it the next day after work....
