Oil dipstick tube removal and reuse

Postby Menoxz » Thu Jan 03, 2019 7:00 am

Greetings!
I'm in the middle of rebuilding my engine using a 5sfe to make it 5sgte. To my dismay the oil stick tube for st185 has been discontinued.. is it possible to remove and use the oil dipstick tube on my 3s block?

My question is can you get one from Lokar and relocate to a better spot.

I've reused them, but have always replaced the oring. It helps that our dipsticks are bolted to water flange.
