Powerglide Dipstick issues....

I have a powerglide transmission that I just installed, but the Dipstick off the old powerglide does not seem to sit properly, cause the bracket wont line up on the bellhousing. It seems as if its too high by about 1/4 to 1/2". Anyone ever experience this? Are all poweglide dipsticks compatible with each other?

I think the are all the same, most have a little tab welded on the side of the stick at the bottom so it bottoms out when put in. Use a new o-ring on it and tap it down till the little tab bottoms out. I always use silicone on mine and let it setup good as the o-ring on some don't seal very good. Also the tube may be bent or the mounting tab may be bent some. Some times they take a little persuading to line up with bolt hole.
