I think its just a nipple attachment on the block which the dipstick feeds through.... but I might be wrong ;). Check the manual for details?

that also formed the air pump mount. When the air pump "disappeared" I used a much smaller aluminum casting from a later (or earlier, I forget which) engine with no air pump. This little casting bolted onto the block, but the steel dipstick tube pressed in just like the larger casting.

cheers

as Furious02's posting--a big nut holding the tube to the base. I seem to remember this base as originally being one that included the air pump bracket casting. I sawed the bracket off the dipstick base to make the smaller base. Sorry for the confusion--late night brain fade!

There's a big nut that fits over the dipstick and compresses the sleeve, holding the whole thing in place. If you unscrew the nut, the tube (with the sleeve most likely attached) will lift out. If you don't see the sleeve on the tube, check for it in the mount. If it's missing, a copper compression sleeve from the plumbing store will work!

Really!
