I’ve transferred the screw and olive bit over to the 300 tube. The tube fits in just the same and the length seem the same - so my plan was to benefit from the better fit and double check the reading by pouring in a precise amount of oil.

I think I ordered the olive and tube - but re-used the screw in bit. Do you not have the original dipstick with it ?

I did also consider using the series set up from the 2.25 - which I think is the same part as used on the 200tdi Defender engine - but I wasn’t sure how it would fit with the manifold.

There is a cheap one on eBay: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F253413495722

Looks like it should probably fit as it’s shorter and self supporting ..

Yes i still have the original one but its a 200 Def one as originally the engine was a Def engine but re-dressed as a Disco engine ( damaged timing case ) with a 300 turbo / manifold now fitted.

Would you happen to have the part number for the olive so i can buy one :)
