Cobalt327 thanks for the tips I will give that a try. Actually I have trimmed the tube 1" already in the past and have an OEM SBC dipstick with trying to maintain 7qts on the dipstick is difficult. If the level falls .5-1 qts it comes off the dipstick. I am not sure if it is due to the pan shape with the kickout that a very small change in amount of oil in the system results in a larger change on the level shown on the dipstick; it appears I need a longer dipstick than the 19.5" stock one.
