Hi,
Any help would be appreciated...
Bought a 1987 block crate engine, SBC, dipstick on the passenger-side & one pice rear seal. I when to GM to buy a dipstick and got the one for the ZZ4.
The stick entends only 2-3 in from the tube. How does that extend far enough into the oil pan? Seems strange if I would have to cut the tube?

If anyone has assemblied this part, your advice would be helpful. I want to install the engine this weekend. Thanks!

I have not yet installed a dipstick but 3" into the pan does not seem unreasonable. Imagine the oil level in the pan if there were 4 quarts of oil in it. I think you will see that things will work out.

Good Luck
