As beautiful as it is functional, this 21” chrome dipstick works as an OEM replacement or as an upgrade for your engine. It is designed to fit all 1965 - 1990 396 to 454 Big Block Chevy engines. A durable chrome plated steel tube with mounting tab is included to complete the look. Installs by sliding the tube into the dipstick hole in the block.
Tube features a shoulder that presses against the block, telling you the tube is fully seated. This ensures your oil level readings are accurate.
