I have looked everywhere for a engine oil dip stick tube mine crushed and broke its a screw in type. No site offers one and jegs has one for almost 100 bucks. And there's no way I'm paying that much when a 351 tubes only 11 dollars at advanced
Do you

You might check a dealer they may find one at a dealer that has one or go with the one at advanced.

Ya but if you check a dealer and they get eh part number there are a lot of dealers in the u.S. That have obsolete parts in stock an dyou make your best deal with them as they wan tto get rid of the stuff. Any ford dealer can check for that part and it will show where there are any that are located. Also as it's a 351 one of the aftermarket places make them for mustangs, as that was a pretty common engine

429 and 460 are pretty much the same motor i'm sure if you look you'll find it. You might try ford obsolete parts or hemmings motor news. They also used these in a large variation of vehicles. Any thing from a mercury/tbird. LTD, trucks etc. Or try a junkyard. Even motor homes used these engines. The only way to get length is to get it out of engine and measure it.
