WTB: ST185 oil dipstick guide tube

Tue Feb 12, 2019 9:28 pm

Just as the title suggests, looking for the press-fitted guide tube for the 185. Paypal ready.

Thanks!

If somebody local (within a 2-3 hour drive of Baltimore) has a trashed shortblock with the tube still in it, I'll gladly take the whole thing off your hands too.

Yes, it can. It's tight, but it's press-fitted. Incidentally, I just accomplished this last night using a 3/8" pin punch. The ID of the hole/port is precisely 3/8". I had hoped to get another tube sooner (rather than wait until I hauled out the old block). But all good. :)

It appears this part is available on Amazon, believe it or not.

It appears to be "temporarily out of stock" on Amazon, and labeled as discontinued on basically any other site. :/

Regardless, I managed to punch my old one out of the block with the right tools.

I could use the same part as well. I’m also in Maryland haha. Please let me know if anyone has one!
