56 Buick oil dipstick question

56 Buick

Recommended Posts

Hi, the 56 Century I purchased a little while back has just arrived and I am going through the car and coming to terms with it all.  I did notice the base of the dipstick handle doesn't 'fit into' the engine block but is rather just 'sitting' on top.  Is that correct?  Thanks, Drew.

The retainer should have some type of seal that fits on top of the block, and below it is expanded metal on the dipstick that is used to make a semi press fit in the bore to retain the dip stick. Hope this helps.
