New 360 dipstick too long?
I just got the dipstick in the new motor. (Should have put it in the block BEFORE installing motor and headers etc...but anyway) The dipstick seems to be hitting something in the pan and sticks up about 2 inches from seating fully in the tube. There is only about an inch of oil on the bottom of the stick when I remove it. I Am tempted to just cut the stick and mark the 5 QT line on it but it would only give me an inch of reading. Any suggestions? I also tried bending the last two inchs of the stcik with a little curve just to help it orient at the bottom, but it's didn't change anything..
