I removed and disassembled my original 302 engine in my Z28 many years ago, stored the parts away (using the 'store' term loosely), and installed a 350 LT-1 engine for awhile. The car has sat undriven in my garage since 1980, but the last 3-4 yrs, reading this forum has gotten my juices flowing about cleaning up the car, reinstalling all the original parts, etc. I spent probably a year searching thru my 'garage 'storage' looking for the parts I removed and *stored*...
. but hadn't been able to find a 'green tipped' oil dipstick, which most of the stuff I'd read said my Z28 should have come with. a week or so ago, I saw a dipstick/tube laying with a pile of 'crap' (in storage in my garage), but noticed it didn't have the green tip, but it triggered my old memory a bit. This one had a flattened tip on the handle and no green tip, see photos, so I've been searching for information on original '69 Z28 dipsticks.
I came across a great thread and post on Yenko.net regarding '69 Z28 dip sticks.. link below for anyone wanting some great data!!http://www.yenko.net/ubbthreads/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Number=416817#Post416817
This thread and post with labeled photos, seems to totally address the question of '69 Z28 dip sticks..
AND.. I find that I do have my original dip stick.. which makes it even more great!
