    Here are pictures of the dipstick tubes and of interest is what I assume is the vendors 'O' marking stamp.
Also, the original tube from the 04B LOS car (the 05B car tube was repainted back in the 80's) has black paint over the body with traces down to the tip that is inside the oil pan.
I only mention this because it was stated here that the dipstick tubes were raw. Maybe so with other motors, but the BB looks to have it painted.

  Both tubes from the 04B and 05B (motor dates T0214MZ & T0308MW respectively) are the same shape and both have the 'O' stamp.

Remember that the dipstick and tube are unrelated to the engine assembly date - they were installed at the car assembly plant.
   Knowing that then I can see how different P/N sticks show up on differently dated motors. It comes down to what is on the motor rack at that time of car assembly (ex: T0214MZ w/04B vs. T0308MW w/05B).

  I can post pictures of the tubes if needed.
Did the "HP" version motor have a larger least for a Camaro?

Yes, for power disc's.

 I like the gold and black stripe combo. Looks like a new paint job?

51  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Trim tag and engine stamp opinion on: December 28, 2014, 06:57:50 PM
 I don't know much about stampings but the one thing I immediately found odd was the condition of the motor with pealing paint, grease dust on heads and block and the missing intake compared to the relative good condition of the booster, clean firewall and wire harness tape.

Just my observation,

 Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to all.

2m is powerglide, no turbo 350 in 67 camaros and turbo 400 was a big block only.
  My one 67 L35 w/TH400 has the UOIT listing 2M as M35 "PWR GLIDE AUTOMATIC"
I believe this to mean the Fisher body was prepared to use an automatic transmission in general and not indicative of the model transmission used.

Hi Jim,

  It would be easier if you posted a picture to get a better idea of what is looks like.

55  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Dip stick on: December 21, 2014, 12:14:32 PM
Hi Bob,

  The imprinting is exact between both blades including the hash separators (both gauges use : as a separator)
The gauge measurements are the same for thickness and width.
In the picture you will see differences in the curves nearest the handle being opposite each other and the 0214MZ motor gauge having more of a downward angle as viewed with the bells lined up with the paper line. I don't know if this is by design or the stick is just bent. The metal is very flexible so I don't think it is bent. The buttons are both pink (salmon) though the later one is square. As for shapes, I have seen other dipsticks of different engine sizes with varying roundish shapes so maybe it's the mold shape.

Hi Bob,

   The Chevelle guys are sure into details.
Read reply #20 for a lot more info.

57  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Originality / Re: Correct Dip stick on: December 20, 2014, 10:01:49 PM
After engine assembly and painting, on engine dress line.
Could you check the dipstick length from the top of the bell to the add mark for me? Should be 18 1/8" or 18 1/2" = or - depending which dipstick you have.
Good info on pans, think #3 (3929257) is correct for 1st gen Camaro. Grin

 The measurements are as follows:
T0214MZ - 18 1/8" exactly
T0308MW - 18 1/2" exactly
 Both have the pink button

January L35 and March L78, so early L35's would have the purple buttons and L78's should have the Pink (salmon). I have know idea when the L35 transition  to the pink (salmon) buttons took place or if early L78'S could have the purple buttons. Revision dates do not reflect  when actual production started but early L35's should have purple buttons.
 Was the dipstick installed when the motor was assembled or when the car was. I'm thinking it was when the motor was assembled.
My earliest motor, stamped 0214MZ, has the pink (salmon) stick.  Based on some of your posts about date changes then it may be early Feb the color changed from purple (?) to pink.
  As some extra info about oil pans I came across this from the Chevelle group (I assume the 396 Chevelle has the same pan):

Sorry...but after reading the title I had a flash back and just could not resist quoting the opening line in The Hollywood Night's movie:
A friend with weed
is a friend indeed.

  OK...with that out of my system, I wanted to say I'm glad things worked out for you in retrieving your car with the assistance of folks here.
In a way, CRG is like a car club and we are all its members.  Wink

    Interesting.....When I lay the gauges side by side and align the ":" marks, the 05B motor stick is slightly longer as seen visually at the handle end.
What part of the seal is the measurement made to......the closest to the bell or the seal edge closer to the stick end.
I can take measurements. As for the color, it still looks pink (salmon) even on the part that sits into the handle. I would think that hidden area would not fade.
