"Thanks Russ. I’ve neglected to reinstall the shim when I put the manifold and carb back on, probably explains why the idle is very up and down."

"Haha, thanks Anders. If I knew all this earlier I would have fixed it whilst the engine was still apart. But I got the engine back from the machine shop all re-assembled except for the dipstick tube, which the mechanic had broken while trying to…"

"“Well there’s ya problem!”  I removed the sump today, the stick was nowhere near where it should have been. Bent the tube by levering it with a flathead screwdriver, now the dipstick slides in and out easily. Now I just need…"

"No I don’t think it’s the tube that hits, because I can take the dipstick out and run the motor no worries. But if I put the dipstick back in, it rattles like a bastard and puts a noticeable bend in the stick."

Ricky Tee commented on Jason Edge's blog post Dip Stick Tube: Removing from Engine Block Without Damaging
"Problem was I received the engine back from the builder without the tube installed. I bought a new tube off the shelf and installed it. I think I may have to take the oil pan off and bend the tube. It's the same dipstick that was in the motor…"

I'm looking to replace a piece of the stainless trim that sits on the outside of the car like a sill outside the rear passenger side window.  I can just barely see one screw at one end but does the door panel and/or window need to come out to access this?  If anyone has done this I'd like to learn what is involved.  Here's a photo of the piece I'm talking about:…
