352 dipstick length

Hi all, newbie here.

I'm hoping someone can give me the measurement of the dipstick for a 1966 galaxie 352, I think mine has the wrong stick. I just bought this car and when I changed the oil & filter it read full with only 4 qts! A measurment of the length from the bottom to the ferrel would be apperciated. Many thanks,
Rich

Re: 352 dipstick length

There were a few different types of dipsticks and tubes. Tube can bolt to the front of the left head or on one of the exhaust manifold bolts. The difference there is the 8 bolt vs the 14-16 bolt exhaust manifold patterns. It can make the tube longer or shorter depending which one it is. The easy fix is just to scribe a new full mark on yours. I have also seen some tubes that were broken off where they go in the block reused thus moving the level up. 66 was a year of some interesting FE production changes. If your dipstick is original it should have a part number stamped into it. If you can post what the number is if any that would help. I can check my MPC's and see what's listed for tubes and dipsticks.

FFR428, thanks for your reply!

My tube is bolted to the front lower manifold bolt. It's an 8 bolt manifold. I can't find a part number anyplace on the stick, so assume it is an aftermarket replacement although it has been in use for some time. The dipstick measures 19" from the tip to the bottom of the ferrel, and 2" from the tip to the full mark. As I said, it measures full with only 4 quarts and that includes filter change. I think it should be 6 qts with filter!

Thanks again for you input.

Rich

Rich it looks like the C6SZ-6750-B dipstick is the one you need. Details show 21.56" from "full" mark to the bottom tip of the shield. It seems this one can be hard to find being unique to the 66 year. And I don't know if there's a aftermaket one made.

Re: 352 dipstick length

That engine holds 4 qts of oil with filter. there is nothing wrong with your dip stick. A 460
75 truck engine holds 6 qts.

From the Ford service manual. The * means 6qt with filter change, 5qt without.

Change oil, add 5 qts, run the engine and then let sit. Make a new mark on your stick and that will be the low mark. Add the other qt and make a full mark.
