Dipstick in Timing cover (5.0 EFI)

I've heard that you can put the dipstick for the oil in the timing cover for an EFI 5.0.
Has anyone done it/ seen it/ or have any pics so that I can do it?

Cheers!

Either open the existing dipstick tube hole (RH side sbove lowest cover bold near crank pulley) if there is one or more likely buy a new timing cover with the optional tube hole (Part Number M-6059-D351). Then buy a new dipstick and tube to fit.

Re: Dipstick in Timing cover (5.0 EFI)

That's brilliant!!! I've got tons of documents which tell me what to do, but without the pictures.
The motor is in a 67 Mustang which is why I need the dipstick in the Timing cover. I've still got the original EFI sump and was contemplating using the bracketry for the dipstick on the old 302 sump.

That article is the bomb! i already have close to 20 similar articles for conversions, now I have another.
