Steve and Jerry, Thanks for more info on the dip sticks. I don't know if this clears things up for me or made me more confused.  Cheesy

Rick,

   Sorry we got off the path a little - all this boils down to:

1) My original '69 Z stick is the flattened handle GM6041-M-Quality MS Oil marked, no other part number.

2) My '74 parts manual calls for the 3951576 stick, as does the pan instructions for the 3974251 NOS pan. This pan appears to be the intermediate number (or consolidated number) issued in '69 or later to encompass all three years. That number changed again in later years to (If I remember correctly) 465220, which was black EPDM or painted, but visually correct with the provisions for the factory 302 windage tray. I would take a picture of the one on my '68 Z, but it is assembled on the stand -

3) I'll shut up now 'lest I rile everybody. Just trying to help -

Regards,
Steve

Hey Steve...some profile shots of the pan would be very useful.  From what I understand the differences in the 1967, 1968, and 1969 pans were mostly external.  So the external shots of your 1968 would be very useful.

Steve, No problem getting off track. I learn some of the best stuff with those conversations. What throws me is my dip stick has the flattened handle plus it has the part number on it (3951576). I'm just trying to figure out if it's original. You've been a big help and I appreciate the info you've posted. Look forward to reading more .
