After putting a new pan on mine (no windage tray though), mine would hit one of the mains or something for some reason. That bend in the tube kinda causes a permanent bend to the dipstick.
I wound up putting in one of the tubeless dipsticks that is a solid rod about the diameter of a coathanger. Works great. I did have to remove the O-ring and use a piece of emory cloth to sand it down a little as it would not go in as it was. Put the O-ring back in and now it seals perfect and does not contact anything (I've got headers).
