Re: Dipstick tube for 258?
I bought a rebuilt motor from an eagle. It had the short dipstick tube. I tried to pull my long jeep tube from it's block and it broke off at the block. So I cut the long tube's bottom to make up for the length of the short tube, used a short piece of rubber hose with a clamp on each end to seal the two together, then used the bolt to hold it to the block. Now I have the same setup as original, and can use the original dipstick. I think you need the long tube for jeeping if you encounter water.
