2.5NA dipstick tube

Found my engine leak. Mine snapped off at the base and now need one for the Tith. Hoping there might be a parts engine somewhere..

Trevor @ Rovahfarm has them. Be careful to ensure that the olive is well seated on the tube and mark the tube where it seats in the nut. These have been known to slip after repeated pushing on the handle, resulting in erroneously high readings-consequently low oil levels.

Utica Club...funny, good memories of driving up to Brattleboro from Amherst (drinking age was still 18 in VT), to get cases of UC and Duke to bring back...

Ah good to know on the fitting, I'll reach out to Trevor.

Yep, lot of memories with that golden upstate champaign and the bonds it created amongst our hometown crew. Pretty popular back in the day when a case of UC was $5.95 and yes, drinking age 18. Didn't everyone have this hip 45 record at one time??

Thanks for the tip (and the stroll down memory lane).

I didn't but good call as ill get ahold of one and try that. As an update, I failed at getting a wrench on the dipstick nut due to the exhaust bracket in the way. Tried fooling with the engine mount bolts to free the bracket but lost day light. Thinking that was not the correct approach anyway.
