It's been over a year since I pulled it out of the old block and my memory sucks, but I could swear it has a slight bend to it.
In any case, I will be replacing the oil pan with a known good one when I get over procrastinating (hate lying on a garage floor). I'll find out then. I only asked today because I'm cleaning up loose ends on the car and that got me thinking about the dipstick thing.
Thanks to everyone. This forum is great and so are the people that visit it like you guys.
