966 engine dipstick

On my 966 engine dipstick the rubber is getting compressed from over 50 years of use. It is getting harder to get the dipstick tight when you check the oil.

Can you get the rubber piece new anywhere ?  Or is there something I can do to make it work better ?

Thanks, Jesse

I suggest getting a whole new dipstick.

Over the years metal fatigue develops from taking it in and out and they do break.

Many years ago had to drop the oil pan on a 1066 to get the broken piece out.

It’s only available as a complete dipstick.  Part # 671829C3, sells for 60 bucks

The ones I've seen are not suppose to be taken apart the tighten screw in the plate is staked pretty well to keep it from falling apart

I have taken them apart and just flip the rubber over and put it back together and it will seal up until you get the new one 👍
