Default Re: Holes drilled in dipper tray

IIRC, they may be OEM. Certainly about lowering the level to reduce splash and windage.

Page 576 of the Service Bulletins talks about "lowering" the dipper tray. "And other modifications." (including the oil pump shaft shield.)

I would leave. You might put off having to go with one of those "oil breather" type oil fill tube tops for a bit longer.
