"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."

"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."

"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…"

Although the radiator was not leaking, nor was the car running hot, I tool out the radiator today to have it boiled out and rodded out. Then I changed the oil and filter (filter is very easy to reach with the radiator out), then the thermostat got changed. 

I'll have the radiator back from the shop on Monday, and will reinstall it then.

The front lower ends are gone but what's there looks to be in decent condition and a fair price in today's market. I have no connection, just passing it along in case it might work for someone.
