Does someone make a Bronco push in dipstick tube like this?

Just trying to find something that will help stop the leak from this style tube. Really just want one with the raised part to help plug the hole in the pan.

i really don't think the flange on the tube pushes into the pan, it's more like a stopper. why not something like this that has O-ring seals on it?

What i found that was leaking on my stock oil pan was the flange to the oil pan side was leaking causing a lot of headaches. what i did was i got a lokar dipstick that was the pan push in type and i took my pan off then i drilled out the old rivets and took it all apart then cleaned everything up and reassembled using black rtv and 10-32 screws and leak fixed.

351w with a rv cam. pumping 300ft./lb torque at 2000 rpm and 160 hp at 3500 rpm to the ground with 4.11 and 35" tires ZF Transmission and a StAk 3 speed t case 133:1 crawl, full family cage, rhino lined tub.

I know that this particular pan was leaking around the rivets, so I drilled them out and welded this thing inside and out. It's not pretty, but I know she won't leak from the plates. I could swear I've seen a Bronco dipstick tube with that sort of flange. It serves just like someone said, as a stopper for the hole in the pan and I believe there was some sort of rubber gasket below it to help seal things. Anyone? Maybe I've lost my mind.

No brother, I have one of these on my 72. I'm just trying to find a better push in tube for the 67. Thanks though.

I do about the same thing except I use the stock parts and 1/4-20 nuts and bolts. Never had one leak.

What do you use to seal the push in tube?

It's OK to give out, but NEVER give up.

I use a little of the RTV that I use to seal the cup in. Just a thin film around the tube just before I push it in.

I'll try some of the RTV when I put the new pan in. Thanks Chuck and Fordtrucksrule!
