I need to find a replacement for my '95 lt1, (5.7L). Original got bent/broken...the dipstick is fine. I've looked at a lot of sites...no luck. Is this going to be a salvage yard item?

Have you tried your local Chevy dealer's parts department?

The murder victim was drowned in a bathtub full of Rice Krispies and milk.
The coroner blamed the crime on a cereal killer!

Did you look at the Ebay link I quoted?

Most likely the lower section of the tube is still in the block and will have to come out the TOP before a new tube can be driven in. To keep from pulling the pan to drive out from the bottom I made up a bolt with a slide hammer hook to pull one out from above. The inside of the tube has to be threaded with a tap so the puller bolt can screw in. Many times the tube will start turning in the block and upward pressure while turning will work it out.
