GTO totally agree with your statement however with 6Qts of oil it isn't even reading on the dipstick at the moment, hence the reason I am hoping some one can assist with the correct tube length.
It doesn't have to be 100% exact, whatever someone can tell me i will add an inch cut it down, then scribe dipstick. When the engine comes out I will set it up correctly as suggested. I just don't want to cut the tube to short to start with.

By the way thanks for every ones help you have made me feel very welcome on this site.

Temp, the date code on the block is near the distributor hole. The casting number of the block can help date it, too. It's on the passenger side at the rear, near the belhousing. Post those numbers and we'll nail it down. The numbers you listed are the Engine Unit Number and the partial VIN number. No '67 and earlier blocks had a partial VIN on the front of the block or anywhere on the block, so yours is '68-up.

The Verdict

Fired her up today and drove around the block a few times, Yep rear main still leaks, Oh well to be expected. Time to order a graph-tight seal and pull engine again.

Geeteeohguy Casting # is 9790071 I found a decoder which lists this as a 68-69 block does that sound correct?

Is anyone willing to help me out getting a couple of graph-tight seals and posting them to Australia so i don't have to give Falcon $38 for shipping for a seal worth $20, PM if you can?
