Yes, I understand the step at the bottom of the hole holds the lower tube but I am referrring to the step that is about 1/2" down. It's VERY subtle but it's enough where my 7/16-20 tap doesn't touch the bore in the first 1/2" but will grab in the bottom 1/2" of the hole.

It looks like you shouldn't be concerned with the first 1/2" of big hole and just fit the shoulder of your dipstick to bottom out on the lower part of the hole. Use silicone around the top part between the hole and the dipstick.

Just a thought.
