won't is vary depending on the sump, many of which will it be standard?

Never mind Google, get on to eBay and buy a new dip stick !

yeah but there are some different ones for sale

my tube is broken about 3 inches or so down but it site lower which is good for me as it puts it out of the way a little
so the plan is to five the tube a clean cut then re mark and cut down the dipstick once i know where the level should actually be

So the stick is ok but the tube is broke.Mark the dipstick down the length the distance that the tube broke and that should give you the readings for the oil level in the sump.

Hi bud. When I was searching for a new one there seemed to be quite a few different ones. Maybe someone could tell me how much longer the dip stick is than the tube.
Thanks

Yes but if I don't know how long the tube was I'm still confused . Com

Thanks mark. Don't forget to let me know about the sump gasket
