Default B series oil Dipstick tube issues

Ok so I have a b20vtec, and at this past track day at wmhm my oil dipstick tube can be removed while the engine is hot. after shutting of the car from a sessions I check my oil levels and my tube can be removed when trying to pull the dipstick out. BUT!!!, when the engine is cold you cannot remove the tube to save your life.

Does anyone else have this issue? I was going to quick steel it, but it seems that it does not leek on the track. Why is this happening?

JB Weld or Hondabond.

A bunch of ITR's had this issue back in the day.

I figured it was gonna be another problem (burning up dipsticks, one of my old tricks on my turbo ITR) but yeah, the dipstick tube issue is common.

search for t00b through the archives (******** and their spelling. At least it's easy to find once you remember the keyword)

honda bond it as when you need to rebuild motor, they need to take it out.

I used permatex grey and it stayed fine.
