Recently swapped out 4.3 OMC engine with a rubuilt one (non - vortec, no balance shaft).
I need to plug a hole on the bottom left side of the motor where a dipstick would go. Mine currently goes into the oil pan which is on the right side of the motor. Right now, its just making a mess....Any ideas who would sell this plug? I dont think its threaded and the guy at Napa looked at me like I was cray (he's probably right).
This may sound funny, but you can buy a new dipstick with housing from an autoparts store -- like a chrome dress up one -- for like $8.00. You could just put that in there. You'll have two dipsticks, but at least the hole is plugged.
like Limited said; that is an off-beat tube, maybe 5/16s. Jasper will know. I have a jasper, but am up to the point for de-winterizing, that the lower dog house is on, and I can't see what Jasper used.
