Good article, I like the DIY idea.
Before you buy a whole new assembly examine the hole where it screws in and make sure that the threads are in good shape.

The factory dipstick tube does not screw-in.
They are are press fit.
There are no threads in the block unless someone tapped the block.

Since I am missing other parts and the local old junkyard has a couple FEs laying on the ground I am going to see if I can get a good used one.
