Re: broken dipstick tube



had good luck with my little snap on slide hammer i use to pull trans pumps with the little screw attachment with it sort like a lag screw , and when reinstalling one i had a pair of long nose vise grips i put near the base of the tube and tap on to install it , seemed to work for me hope you get it out

I went to the  hardware store and got a lag screw that seems the right size. I guess I will try screwing that down in there and see if i can yank it out. I do worry about metal chips getting down in  the pan though. I have another laying around from my  old blown up 273 so I will use that. Think I will try some black rtv to hold it in. And then I am going to actually check the new stick against the factory spec oil capacity and recalibrate dipstick if necessary.

If we are talking 318 Poly yet to find a decent after-market replacement.  Maybe Mopar performance or straight from a dealership?  Tried this Milodon and it was a non-starter, left feedback as such.  Problem is tube is tapered where it fits in the block – needs to be tapered and correct size/tolerance..........

I had a disaster with mine and it broke off flush with the block. It was apart and on an engine stand but it was still tough. I couldn't get it out from the bottom and there just isn't much room from the top to get in a drill. I think I tried an easy out? I think mostly I just gouged from the top and worked to get it to collapse on itself so I could pry it out. I had to fight to get a new one back in and actually ruined my first attempt. The second one felt like I had possibly fractured it right at the block so I JB welded it into the block and it's still there today. It better not break or I'm really up a creek.
