The dipstick in clark kent is too long, looking for a correct dipstick.  length from the bottom of the "bell" to the full mark is 15-1/4" and this is the measurement i am looking for.  On the one i have, it reads full at the W in Warranty.  Maybe joe can measure the one out of the wagon and get a part number off of it?
I know i can just make a mark where full is on what i have but i DO NOT want to do that. I want to install the correct dipstick.
Mike

Mike, if the part number on your dipstick is C8VE-6750-B, then it originally came from the ford factory in a 1968 Thunderbird with a 429 engine and a front sump oil pan.

I've got a '76 Montego with original 460.
 
I was going to attach pics of my dipstick, but can't.  Does anyone know why this site won't let me attach pics larger than 999x999?  From the looks of your pics, they're much larger than that.  How'd you do that?  When I try to, it won't let me.
If you want pics of mine, send me your Email address, and I'll send them to you.  Part number on my dipstick is D5AE-6750-BA.

Mike, I looked in my part book supplements, They measure from the top of shield(bell) TO SAFE MARK, for #D5AZ 6750-C   15'' 13/16 ths .   75/78 MODEL LINES (A) fullsize Ford,(B) Torino/LTDII,& (S)Thunderbird. They are confusing as heck. They show several part #'s & lengths for the dipstick yet list only one TUBE assmy. part #C8SZ 6754-A. I tried to snap some pics for you. Hope they help. I'll have my Ranchero here tomorrow afternoon, & send you the # that is on my oil indicator.

Ok.  I'll send pics tonight, after I get home from work.  Or I'll try the photobucket option.  I was trying to upload to the site.  It let's me upload to the site, but when I use the link up above to add a picture, the largest it will let me add is 999x999.  Below is a link to the pic I uploaded last night.  I don't know how to embed the picture into the post.  Also, the picture sucks, taken indoors with the flash.  I'll see if I can get better pictures outside, before it gets dark.
 
EDIT:  Figured out how to embed the image from our site.  See below.  I'll still get better pics this afternoon.

Mike just looked @ mine, it measures 15'' 13/16 from TOP of the BELL to the SAFE MARK. Engineering #D4AE 6750-AA. It must have been replaced 'cause it's a '74 eng# in a '71 DOVE block.

I would use the same front timing cover dipstick since I would want the "full" and "add" oil levels to remain the same, just with more capacity when using another pan.
