My Rally 4 measures just over 500mm from seat to end of dipstick

SCA has some with the tubes;

phoned wreckers ,same problem all gone or broken ,trouble is the end is in the sump. will make my own ,what i really want to know is the distance from the bottom of the stick to the full level hole. if i can get that will be easy to work out the rest, so any help with the measurement would be great.

That it the critical measure, it is the K3-VE?

There is this generic unit but zero detail;

Thanks for that Paul ,like you say no detail and it looks like its the outo transmission . But not to worry some kind soul might measure there dip stick for me.
nice talking

I ll measure it up for you. I have the k3ve2, not sure if theres a difference.

Scale is in CM ofcourse.

You could possibly grab a metal one from SCA and then trim and mark (scour) to match the length (fill mark specifically).

Awesome response @Roffelkut :+1:
