Dipstick 1937 or 1949?

Recommended Posts

I have a 1937 six cylinder and a 1949  Straight eight but only one dipstick and I do not remember which engine it came from..

     Could it be the same for either engine?

This is my first attempt to try using this forum hopefully I have submitted my information properly.

I do not have either car just the engines  with transmissions which are in running condition

Thank you Kornkurt for your rapid reply and the good news that I can use the dipstick in either engine!

 Since the oil pan was off the 8 I was able to see the  dipstick Full Mark lining up approximately with the top of the oil cleaner rim. Later with the oil pan back on I  added 5 quarts of oil and noticed the dipstick was at the full Mark like it should be.

  Thanks again for this valuable Flathead
