    Angry Broke the Oil Dipstick Handle Off!

    Went to put on my newly painted engine cover on (it looks awesome I might add), when I caught the plastic dipstick handle and it snapped right off! The brioken end is down in the metal tube. Anyone have any ideas on getting it out? Or do I have to replace the whole dipstick tube?

    You are THE MAN!

    I went and tapped the broken end with my smallest drll bit, then twisted in a screw. I was remembering how tight the fit was, but then I remembered that I had taken out the O-ring. I applied the vice grips... a little constant pulling... and it popped right out!

    Now I need to find a new dipstick (without a plastic handle).

    Billet Tech... you remove the pin from the plastic and use the rod with their handle, MAJOR improvement.
