It doesn`t make a difference what side it`s on. Just make sure you use the same dipstick that comes in the engine you get.

If you are using headers it is a non-issue. The problem occurs with some stock exhaust manifold types and a pass side dipstick.

Does it indicate what year the engine was produced ? (or at least the oil pan ?)

Somewhat. The '55-79 engines are drivers side dip, '80-85 are pass side, '86-up are one-piece rear main seal and pass side dip.
