That looks like the section that goes into the pan that keeps the crank and rods from tearing the stick up. Why are you pulling it?

i dont have one at all on the Olds. neither does the Austin. however, if i was going to use one, i would get a Lokar.

the new dipstick shaft goes into block. that looks like it was broken off and plugged with a Bolt.

No matter what you get for the Top outside portion that guide tube Adam is referring to stays in the block. I would assume it is still in there and it is just the top part that you have plugged which looks broken off at the moment. Hell I use the factory tube. If you have header clearance issues then the Lokar is a good choice.

Looks like someone threaded the original dip stick hole in the block with a tap, and not only threaded a bolt into the threaded hole, but used a jam nut with some epoxy to seal it off.

Rather than disassemble the motor to get everything that has been done already corrected; I would either cut and weld a dipstick tube from a previous year SBC oil pan into your one piece oil pan rather than risk getting any filings or other crud into your motor. Or buy an aftermarket seven quart pan NASCAR style (with kick outs rather than a deep oil pan) with a dip stick tube in the pan.
