Will a 7.3 oil dipstick tube work on a 6.9

Got everything back together and realized I didn't but the dipstick on and lost the block adapter for the dipstick! Does anybody have a pic of the passenger side? What do i have to do to get to the dipstick out because it look's like I have to remove the manifold again.

FYI! I changed the passenger side exhaust manifold with a 7.3 exhaust manifold. Now I need to go back and get the oil tube dipstick are they interchangeable?????

you dont have to remove anything. it slips between the manifold and the gasket, clamps onto the valve cover bracket. theres an O ring that goes around the tube. yes, 6.9 and 7.3 are the same. you can get another block adapter for it from ford. not sure if anywhere else might have one. if i find my extra one i can send it out to you.
