    4L60E dipstick tube length

    let me start by saying this is a great forum, lots of very good information here.

    I am putting a 98 LS1/4L60E in an MG and had to shorten the length of the trans dipstick tube in order to clear the hood, I marked the amount of trim in order to shorten the dipstick the same amount but have since lost the measurement. does anyone have an 4L60E in the open that could pull the dipstick tube with dipatick in it and measure how far the dipstick protrudes below the tube so that I could adjust mine to be the same.

    thanks
    JM

    I can tell you off the top of my head it is half an inch or less. They are always very hard to fill correctly.

    Do you still have the piece that you cut off the tube? If so, measure that and remove the same amount from the dipstick and you should be good. Be sure to make your cut to the correct side of the line when you mark it to take into account your blade or die grinder width.

    I marked the amount of trim on some masking tape and put that on the tube. during the move from washington to texas the tape has disappeared so I have nothing to go by
