Angry Dip Stick tube

Hi , anyone know where i can get a dip stick tube for a 97 ranger 4.0 . I'm told that it has to be from a , 97 -2000 will fit ( the tube is suppose to be bigger in these years ). They are NO LONGER available from the dealers ; and mine has rusted off . I cant find any listing on the net for aftermarket ones ( if they make any ) . If anyone has any info , I would appreciate the info .
Tks D.

As far as I know of pull the old one out and push the new one in. There may be a bolt holding it on the exhaust manifold.

You should be able to if I'm not wrong. It's almost like they set it up like a compression fitting it's a really tight fit with a o ring at the base where it meets the motor to stop leaks.
