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

Depends on what sump you have fitted and if your tube is the long one or the normal sized one as a base size too!

The one I have somewhere is the long one from a van/truck which brings the ring pull to the edge of the drivers rocker

The end bit should be a similar size though so if I find it I can measure it
