I have a 1984 Jeep CJ with the 4.2 engine. The oil dipstick tube is broken were it meets the block. I would like to replace it but a new one cost about $200.00. Various parts websites show that the tube fits years 1983 - 1986. The tubes for year model before 1983 and after 1986 cost about $20.00. Question - Can I substitute a tube from a different year model? From the pictures that I have seen the tube just looks shorter.
Thank you in advance for any assistance,
have the same problem?
