Hey, thanks alot! now that i think of it soun ds about right.
I think i was looking at a chevelle site. last three digits starting with c for car...and of course mine starting with t..... yeah im new to all this!
See I was worried it amy turn out to be a 305 because i have bought two oil dipsticks for the 350 block mount and niether of them would fit. The tube is slightly too big. So i found and old oilpan tube (which had a similar curve) and cut it to the same length and it fits fine only because the middle of the tube where i cut it from is smaller. The only thing i could think of was maybe the old one got stuck in there and was broke off, but there is no way the piece remaining in the block would stay perfectly round and would probably have a jagged edge sticking out. which mine doesnt have. I guess i will just have to put 8 quarts of oil in and let it settle and then put in the dipstick and get my dremel tool and engrave a new full line to ensure I get a good oil level reading. Id rather use an original dipstick. but for some reason thats not workin out for me.
Thanks again for your help, and if you have anymore ideas let me know!
