69 Boss 302 Dipstick tube
« on: August 09, 2010, 09:46:44 PM »
I am trying to locate a dipstick tube for a 69 Boss 302. I would like an original but I am hearing that this is next to impossible. A nice aftermarket one will do though. Any suggestions?

I would have to look at my records, but I bought mine last year on e-Bay from either Dearborn Steel Tubing, or Kar Kraft.  Call them and see if they have any left.  Mine was N.O.S., but not cheap!  Hope this helps.

Like everything you have to be careful IMHO that NOS is not just a good reproduction ;)

Might want to check over on the Boss 302 Forum - believe there is one member that might be reproducing them also

Good point Jeff!  I believe you may be correct in assuming that someone is reproducing them.  Mine has the silver Ford parts tag on it (but I guess if you think about it, that can be reproduced also).  If it is a good repro., just make sure the price is comparable to the quality.
