I've had the same problem with my Pontiac 350. Well, not the rear main problem, but sometimes at long, WOT passes, I've blown my dipstick out as well. I haven't seen anything on the tip of the dipstick to suspect any mechanical interferenc (I couldn't imagine the reason that it'd only happen at WOT if it was mechanical anyway) so I'm almost postive that's not it. I think I may take an extra dipstick, and drill some small holes in the top, and stick a small amount of foam around the top to see if that'd help at all. Maybe that's goofy, but I don't know what else to do.
