Interesting stuff.
I also went out and looked at the '84 engine and it doesn't even have a spot for the rear dipstick. There isn't even a boss sticking out for it.

Fortunately, I do have an extra oil pan in the garage that has a dipstick going into the pan itself. Next time I'm up for it, I can just swap the pan. I don't think I have any other options!

No, it doesn't look like you do in this situation. Someone replaced the engine with an older block it looks like.

Huh? Proper sentence structure & grammar go a LONG way at making your post readable & answerable.

And so you're waking up a 5 yo thread and trying to ask WHAT???

The source of that dipstick is one of two places:

1) The side of the oil pan
2) A hole in the block near the distributor.

Which one depends on which application (truck or sedan) the engine was assembled for, people swap in car engines all the time....

00CHICOoo, do you mean that what is shown on the dipstick is not accurate? In other words, if you have just changed the oil, used a new oil filter and poured in 6 quarts of oil, does the dip stick not show "full"? If that is what you are saying, open this link and see what was suggested: https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1...e-help-me.html

My pan has the sump in the same basic location, and the dipstick goes thru the side of the pan, behind the filter. In fact, it's slightly loose where it goes thru the pan, so it spends 99.9% of the time with the tube resting on the filter. I always move it away as I change the filter, but it's right back on it within seconds of starting the engine.
Do you know we're is the part number of the oil pan , it's on front or back sade
