60's & 70's Truck oil pan dipstick

Post by thehemikid » Tue Feb 13, 2018 9:46 pm

Looking for info on the Big Block truck dipsticks. The one's that the bottom of the tube has a female flare & nut that goes into a brass 90* fitting that appears to bolt through the side of the oil pan.

What yrs/models where they used?
Where there different length tubes/sticks?
