    This is the dipstick with my 700R4. I'm pretty sure it's wrong. I know the picture isn't great, but does anyone recognize what this dipstick might go to? It's not backwards, because if I turn it around it's way, way off. My guess is Turbo400? You can see the bracket I had to make just to mount it. The bracket bolts to the back of the head.

    Yeah, where did you get the tube?

    As far as correct or not, how long is the stick vs. the tube?

    The tube looks correct, but the dipstick is definitely an older one, mid-80s or older at least.
