The little indicator disc is actually threaded on the end of the wire/rod.
Thanks Peecher, this ring is attached lower down on the wire rod and sits just below the intake manifold. Mesured the distance from the top of the oil float and it was 15 inches, just want to make sure it was at the correct level. One more question where would you hook up to the engine when I lift it, want to change some tranny seals while I'm at it.

Peecher, When my engine was rebuilt, the builder saw fit to remove the float and install a dipstick, (the dipstick!) This was before I owned the car. I have been contemplating the install of the float since I have the parts. You had indicated a chain to lift the engine--do I need to to this to remove the pan? Glenn Lorei
That lower ring (flange) was soldered to the top of the float. Not sure but I think if you remove the intake manifold the wire rod can be removed from the top, however, you still have to remove the oil pan in order to get the float. A chain with a couple of end-lugs attached across the engine to the head studs works well for lifting.
