    Default Dipstiick tube for Dooley Pan

    I need a new dipstick tube for a 10qt dooley gen 4 pan in my jet. Is it a standard BBC stick or custom? Do I need to get one from them?
    Thanks,

    Usually they are threaded at the pan. In that instance get any dipstick and put a compression fitting on the pan. Use some heavy plastic tubing cut to length for the dipstick.

    Default GM type...

    Some Dooleys use a standard GM type tube siliconed into the larger receiver tube of the pan...You'll just have to mark "FULL" and maybe a quart low on the actual dipstick... Aftermarket "chrome" tubes will work also.... If you send it, or take it, to Dooley, they will set you up with the above mentioned threaded type commonly seen on their V drive pans.....

    I have an older pan with the siliconed in tube. The tube cracked at the base and was lucky to be able to fish out the broken piece in the pan. I tried a standard BBC tube and it was too big in diameter. Think a press in SBC tube will work?

    Isn't the pan receiver tube "swelled" or flared out on top? maybe that portion is broken off also...I've used several Dooley pans and all of them used either the standard tube, or the screw in type... Again, Dooley will put on the screw in type quite reasonably... We just had one done, as well as a re irridited gold finish, (which looks brand new) and it was only $95 bucks or so total cost....I can't say enough about Dooley's customer service......

    The pan reciever has a double step in it, thats right where the tube broke. I was just able to get a needle nose pliers in and fish it out. The piece I took out was about 3" long.

    Measure the piece you took out and look for a suitable replacement... Was the top of the overall tube bolted down or just stuck up in the wind?..... If it wasn't anchored, figure out a way to secure the new one or it too will snap off eventually... If I were you I would call Dooley and find out if the dipstick tube is a "special" size....714 630 6436
