96-00 block dipstick question

I have been doing a search on finding a dipstick for my new 383.
tried a couple that didnt work already.

Its a 350 block # 10243880 with dart heads. & dougs headers.
1996-2000 I believe.

I found a chevy part number for a zz4 , 12551144 & 1255154 tube and dipstick. Does anyone know if this will work.
Or is there and older stick that can work from a like year chevy??

Where is the hole, When you ask for a 96/00, people think of LS series, a lot of replacement blocks came with dual dipstick mounting holes, check your oil pan are there
dimples one side both sides, which side????

Kevin,
Order one for a 99 Tahoe 5.7 VIN "R" That is what is in my Tahoe. The dipstick is on the pass side. Not sure if it will clear headers or not, I will get a pic for you in the morning if you want ?

The hole is located on the passenger side, cant locate any "dimples" on the pan. Its an after market chrome pan that came with the motor.
Bill, do you have the same block number?

Kevin,
Dont know about my block number, but it should be the same. The number you show is correct for a 99 Truck 350. I will take a look in the morning when I pull the Tahoe out of the garage.

Kevin,
I took a look at my Tahoe this AM. Too much junk in the way under the hood to see the casting number It should be the same as yours though, that casting number was used in those years.

You might not like the truck dipstick, it curves up and towards the front so you can reach it easily from the front of the truck. I could not get a picture, forgot I had the camera at the shop and did not bring it home

I would think that any passenger side dipstick for the late model blocks should work. I have a bunch of blocks at the shop and will take a look on Monday.

Re: 96-00 block dipstick question

Thanks Bill, I am going to go and look at a late 90s camaro later and will try to see if that would work.
Seems like it should be an easy thing to do but so far its been a pain.
