difference between 55 and 56 dipstick?

Recommended Posts

Noobie question, but what's the difference? I couldn't find the dipstick for my 322 so I pulled one off a 55 at the local classic junk yard. The problem is, when I fill oil to 1 qt, it bleeds oil until it's around 2 qt. I've been battling with an oil bleed for a month now since it's been colder and it likes to bleed from the distributor seal, oil pressure gauge outlet and fuel pump pin. Thanks in advance!

I don't have a parts book but you could drain the oil pan and measure back oil and compare to your pan capacity according to your shop manual capacity chart and see if it is correct. Your leaks are not related but may be high blowby or simply seal failures.
