Trivia! What is this tube ? (Comes from inside a 327 engine)

Hello!

I am rebuilding my 327 engine... can't seem to find where this goes back? couldn't find information on it...
It was in the box with all the 327 parts...

Let's find out who has an idea!

Very easy
It's the lower guide tube for the Dipstick
You install it first down the hole in block and then install the upper tube (the painted one in the background of your photo) that receives the actual Dipstick.

Ohhh... damn...
I had tried to install it from the bottom and it wasn't working at all... (I'm not the one who removed it...)
You actually need to install it from the top and tap it in? (Like it's press-fit?)

thanks a lot guys... sometime simple things can gat puzzly
