Maybe some pix of what you have might help?? We had a discussion fairly recently...... I think Mancini has a chrome one that should work right on any big block, including yours.


***EDIT*** Maybe you can compare what you have somewhat to this information;
With a stock pan, on an engine with stock stroke (RB or B), the oil level is 1.5" below the lower skirt of the block when the engine is not running....

Put in 5 qts of oil, re-mark the dipstick, and use what you already have...
