dipstick tube

I am trying to find an oil dipstick tube for my 85 jeep cherokee 2.8 v6. did a head gasket change took the dipstick tube out to avoid breaking... ironic. the tube broke in the block inside of the oil pan. it broke right at the lip that seats on the block.

Ive looked everywhere and turns out they dont produce em anymore. chrysler you suck!!

but anyways do any of you know where i can find one? this is the last part that i need to get it going

if i recall right, the 2.8 lame duck is a chevy motor. if i am wrong, someone please correct me. if it is the chevy 2.8, look for the older s10/blazers in a jy. they were fairly common in those.

They're a Chevy LR2 motor. Other than XJs and MJs they were in S10 Blazers and S15 Jimmys, they never came in the pickups. If they ask where ever you end up buying from, you need one for a B code.

S10/S15 has a similar motor, but I think it's a different code. Could be wrong about that though.

according to wiki it was used in

LR2

The longitudinal LR2 was a truck version ("B-code") produced from 1982 to 1990. It used a 2-barrel carburetor and produced 115 hp (86 kW) and 150 lb·ft (203 N·m).

Applications:

1982–1986 Chevrolet S-10/Chevrolet S-10 Blazer
1982–1986 GMC S-15/GMC S-15 Jimmy
1984–1986 Jeep Cherokee
1986 Jeep Comanche

so according to this it was also used in the s10 pickups. but i will see at the junkyards.
