Something not so simple.. Assistance anyone?

I was the unfortunate 'victim' of the theft of the original engine oil dipstick in my 1968 F100 (6.4 390) . I went back to the place in question, of course the young man is no longer working there (he had a 67 parked in the back). Went to check the oil last week, pulled out dipstick and it was obvious not the one that belongs (cut/squared bottom and no markings to register if oil was actually in pan). Long story short. I have scoured internet, called a couple of our parts yards, was directed to LMC, ordered, didn't fit (way too long). Any suggestions, websites, replacements? Thank you in advance.......

Best thing to do at this point is to file a reference mark on the dipstick at the current oil level.

If someone would be so kind and get measurements from theirs you could then make the long one work.
I think for a start you need to where yours goes into the motor (I not up on the 390s) is it block, pan, timing cover as theirs will need to be the same.
Then from the stop "washer" at the top they measure how long it is and cut yours the same.
Then from the "washer" to the low & full marks and mark yours the same.
After that it should be good to go.
or
Cut the long one so it fits in to the "washer".
If you changing oil and it holds 5 qt with filter dump in 3qts and where it falls on the stick is the low 1 qt.
Now dump in the 4th qt and check and where it is on the stick is the full level.
Now if you dump in the 5th qt and start the motor to fill the filter, tune it off and give it time for the oil to make its way to the pan the level should be at the full mark.

Easy yes?

See post #5. The Ford part number, applications and the various lengths from the shield are listed.

CKF10068 this maybe bad to say ,but it,s how i feel. the more i am around "people" the more i love my dogs. to me the lowest forms of life are some one who steals and the other is a liar. that may not be P.C. but that,s just to bad. i have worked to hard for what i have just like i am sure others on this site have. but if you try to steal my stuff, you better hope that i do Not catch you.

It's not sad to say. It is more sad that it has to be said. I guess I shouldn't be shocked by people's behavior anymore. Still try to believe there are more good than bad, but sometimes its hard in situations like this. Geez. However, I am very appreciative of all the responses trying to help me rectify this situation.
