    Handle busted off my dipstick. Could it be reattached? Epoxy?

    Or does anyone know of a replacement ? this is for 904 auto on a 66 d dart \6. Dipstick appears to be 18inches to the collar, then handle.

    The best way is to pull the old one out and put the new one in.

    i dont have a welding system. Infact it appears this one has been soldered or brazed at one point, which is where it broke off. humm...

    There is a junkyard near, but they dont have old cars. Would anyone happen to know any other Mopar Vehicles that used this same dipstick? Maybe I can find a newer model car with it?
    thanks for the Mancini tip. Hope to not pay $40+ for this. cheapskate in the house

    If cosmetics are unimportant i would drill a 1/4 inch hole in the center beside the broken blade and screw a wood screw with a large head in the hole. Its what i did on my deisel. It works.

    Go to your local pick a part, find one thats longer. Cut it to match your old one. Scribe a line for 'full'. Only thing cheaper is to bum one off a friend.

    I posted a wanted ad here on FABO and a member mailed me a dipstick for FREE! That's why this place is the best.
