AMC 258 oil dipstick tube

I am looking for a source for a AMC 258 dipstick tube. Bulltear has them for a v8, not the i6. I have tried my local junk yard and all they had was junk. Does anyone have a good suggestion? Thank you in advance. BTW, the Omix-ADA one does not fit.

Thank you in advance!!

Nope. I was able to successfully extract the all of the old tube. That's how I can tell the New one I got is not even close to as long as the original, especially below the retaining rings.

Measure the length of the dip stick coming through engine side of both tubes. That is the critical length. If you didn't get a new dipstick with the tube adjust the length of the old to fit or you can buy an adjustable length stick. do the math and drive on!

Good luck
