Default Oil Dipstick Tube Assembly for 4.0L OHV

I have a 97 Ranger with a 4.0L OHV V6 and manual transmission. My dipstick tube has completely rusted into and the dipstick is rusted into the upper portion of the tube and connot be separated. So I am looking for a new assembly and how hard is it to change out? Thanks

Does it have the attachment ring where it bolts onto the mainfold on the tube? So I just take out the maifold bolt and pull it out then? Does yours have the dipstick that slides inside as well...cause the upper portion of the tube that broke off is rusted and stuck to the actual dipstick..so I need entire assembly including inside dipstick with handle. If it is in good condition, then I will take it for 20 bucks. Thanks.

OK cool, just sent you the payment via paypal to the address you gave above. I really appreciate it. If for some reason the part is damaged or something, I think the transaction can be voided, but I assume everything is cool. Thanks again and await the part. If you can email me the tracking info once you get it boxed up and shipped out, i sure would appreciate it.

Hey man still haven't seen or heard anything? Did you get it shipped out yet? Do you have any tracking info or anything? Let me know cause shouldn't have taken this long to get if you already shipped it out. Thanks.

Camel82 I in fact have a good used one that fits the older trucks 93-96 which have the smaller diameter shank. I found out the hard way that the 97, which I have has a larger diameter shank in the oil pan/block hole....so I do have one if you are interested...

Hey tinglepepsi, sorry took so long to get back, yes I still do have the dipstick tube. I could do 28 bucks shipped to you if you are still interested.

Thanks,
Dan
