460 Aftermarket oil dipstick tube fitment

The bracket on my stock dipstick tube rusted off and might not fit my new headers anyway, so I bought a proform aftermarket one.

The proform has a male threaded end, but my stock one just pushes in with an o-ring. Are there any aftermarket ones that are built with the same end as the stock tube?

The later efi pans use the push in with clip dipstick, I had one on my engine, but, I was unable to make the stock dipstick work with my carb headers, or find an aftermarket one to fit it. I ended up having to swap to an earlier pan.
