Ok from what I saw with my engine I only saw the dipstick tube when I pulled
off the passenger side air tin ( AKA after removing the carbs and etc. which
I was able to do with the engine in the car). It is not a easy thing to get
to but as far as I can tell there is no reason to remove it on a regular
basis ( But don't quote me here I am blonde).

I want to try this when I rebuild my engine ( any time this year / summer I
hope ) But I am going to hook up a different light to connect it to instead
of the oil light so I know when it goes off that it is not the oil pressure
but temp. ( make sense ????? ). if you saw your engine with out the engine
tin was there a tube sticking up on the passenger side ( like a bugs )  then
as far as I know it is a drop in thing
