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

Oil pans

we are putting a f250 4wd 1976 300 4.9 inline six into a 1983 f150 2wd. Do we have to swap the oil pans? Will the 1976 fit like it is or do we have to put the 83 oil pan on the 76?

Hmmm....

Did you happen to notice the date on which I made that post, Bill?

Probably not; but it was almost a year ago at this point.

Yes, I noticed the date, but what the hell difference does that make?

The thing is, you did a 'NumberDummy' on the by being crabby because you didn't like the way he parsed sentences.

Spanish is his first langauge and I think he did pretty well, considering.

IMO: One crabby old SOB is enough, FTE doesn't need another.

I believe so. The '76 engine has a centrally located sump, whereas the '83 has a rear. It was moved to the rear to avoid the axle.
If you use the '76 oil pan, it'll hit the axle.

Fortunately, the '83 will fit onto it just fine.

Thank you. You are correct it will not fit. Now we have the same problem the other guy had. We have no way to check the oil because the dip stick in the 76 is in the front of the engine (shallow end of the pan). The dip stick in the 83 is in the back of the engine.

This was my issue. I eventually fixed it by getting an oil pan that has the dipstick in the pan itself. You can probably source the bracket and dipstick tube from a junk yard.
But, without this, there's no way to check the oil.

Note that this oil pan does NOT come with the raised ridges around the bolt holes, so you would need to use an 89+ 1 piece silicone gasket, which is an upgrade anyway.
