Sorry guys to post two ? should have combined them any also wanted to ask what would cause the tube where the dip stick goes in to seep oil its the tube that goes in the block then dip stick goes in tube Talked to my local dealer thought there might be a o ring he says it does not have a o ring of any sort the oil is seeping where tube enters block my idea was to clean it real good then apply JB weld around it Thanks for any advice

I would not use JB weld. Use your favorite sealer instead. You may need to remove the tube at a later date.

That tube is a press fit. If it feels loose at all, you might try gently tapping on the end with a block of wood.

Take the tube out, clean it and the hole apply Indian head gasket shellac, let it get tacky and drive the tube back in using a block of wood.

Another thing to check.

If you have enough blow-by, oily vapor will exit the breather cap/dipstick assembly. This is directed back towards the block and can collect on the tube - gravity then causes it to appear to leak at the six o'clock position where the tube enters the block.
