    I just got a chrome oil tube and dip stick. How do you get that damn tube in the hole?
    Thanks

    Push it in...all it is is a rubber o-ring around it then the tab is bolted to the back corner of the manifold IIRC

    its a pita to get it to push in, it involves alot of pushing, pulling, cussing, and more pushing and pulling. I put my lokar in my big block b4 I put the motor in lol, I made the mistake of pulling my sbc out of the oilpan when I was puttin headers on.......bad move......
