I have decided against using a dipstick on my Little M SBC. I have been told just to use a cup plug and drive it in the hole. Can anyone tell me what size cup plug i can use to drive in the hole and seal it?
Thanks

why wouldnt you use a dipstick??? the part number for the GM disptick is on their site to install. I have it installed in mine and no problems at all.

I wanted to use some type of locking dipstick, unlike the gm unit. I couldnt find a LOKAR that would fit. At that time I was told just to plug the hole, especially since this car will not be street driven.
