    Dip stick/tube for new GM Vortec block - where to find the correct part-gctid814960

    Searches turn up a mess of parts that are impossible to tell if they will work or not. Anybody know the part number or link to a known workable dipstick tube for the new GM 5.7 Vortec engines?

      Thanks mr.bent. Center Stage has nothing on their website, but I do see a $125 one on eBay for Mercruiser.

      Got the Proform 66130. It doesn't fit right, but I could cut off the end of the tube and get it to work. Still looking.

            Thanks for the link hookemdano. I see lots of different options in there, some of which should work.

            For the moment I have taken the Proform 66130, cut the lower tube section down to 1" after the crimp, and bent it up nice to fit between the block and the exhaust manifold. After the surgery the dipstick will no longer go down the tube. So I got a thin wire transmission dipstick from Autozone and will be cutting it off and remarking it to the correct level. If that fails to do the trick I will pick up one of the Mercruiser style units. I just hate the price of those as they are like $100 bucks and up.
