'65 A904 park lock cable housing

Ok, so I got the housing and spring etc installed. Ran into the next issue: the V8 transmission didn't come with a dipstick, the slant 6 dipstick is too long for the V8 tube and the slant 6 tube doesn't fit with the exhaust manifold. I ordered a small block dipstick off ebay, but it arrived and is the same length as the slant one. I could move the plug down on the slant dipstick and somehow reattach it at the right spot. I could also bend the slant tube away from the exhaust manifold. There are also some more on ebay, but they are 60 bucks and who knows if they will fit. Anyone have a spare that they'll sell me?
