Dipstick Blowing Out

I had a similar problem with my 383 SBC at WOT. What a mess! I ditched the cheap chrome dipstick and tube for a nice Lokar unit. Their billet handle has two rubber O-rings that create a nice snug fit at the tube. If they (or someone else) makes a stick and tube for your engine, buy it; it is money well spent. Good luck with your rear main seal. Ed. www.edgesz28.com

Don't use the rope seal. Go with the rubber.

Maybe the dip-stick is blowing out because of excessive oil-level...

For a while I routinely ran a litre above the mark on my chev sbc beacuse I'd made the mistake of a high volume pump and stock pan -didn't want to suck air at full speed (I have since stopped this, since it kills power and I don't rev much past about 4500 rpm usually (65 mph is about 3000 rpm)).

Good examples of why you should try Total seal Gapless rings

All rear main rope seals leak, just their design.

Now stop bringing threads back from the dead.

I had this problem on my 327 sbc the dip stick would always pop out when i would go past 2500 rpms, i didnt have money for new rings so i just put some valve covers that had 2 EGRs so that gave me 3 plus the one on the intake manifold. my dip stick stays in now but i get a lil bit of oil on my hood now and than but nothing too bad. This winter im going to rebult it and put new rings and mybe some new pistons...

You mean valve covers that had PCV valves right? Not EGR valves. (even though technically I guess you could call them EGR since they do re-circuate exhaust gas)
