DHMag i just chamfered the end of the tube, smeared a bit of moly on it, and pushed it in.

I want to install my new chrome oil dip stick in my sbc. My question is that it seems to be a fairly tight fit ( doesnt just slide in) im guessing this is the way its supposed to be. So how do i install it? do i put a box wrench on it and tap it in? I just dont want to have issues once its in so i thought i would ask a dumb question instead.
The problem you're having is that the chrome builds some thickness to an already tight fit. There is a bulge where the dip stick sits down on the block. Remove the chrome below that point. Add a little Lock-tite and press the tube in.
