Hi, I have a 1.9 waterboxer and the engine has come back all balanced and runs like a champ. Unfortunately during the first couple of 000's miles a new alternator belt seperated and knocked off the other belts and snapped the dipstick tube. So am looking for anyone who has one (a dipstick tube not the actual dipstick) . I live in Staunton VA 24401. Please let me know if you have one and how much. Thanks in advance

You can try searching the classifieds or placing a want ad.

Or you can google for vendors...one example Bus Depot http://www.busdepot.com/details.jsp?partnumber=025115611

I think I have a couple.
I'll check when I get home tonight.
If I have one I'll also get a price on shipping.

Hi GMByers thanks for that but unfortunately this is the actual dipstick and I need the tube that the dipstick goes into.

Flaxsix, thanks - let me know

I found a dipstick and tube. I believe it's from an '84, 1.9L.

Price is free plus shipping.
Let me know how you want it shipped.
