Thanks

So,. the dip stick was in the motor and the crank was not hitting,.

You changed the oil,.

NOW the crank hits the dipstick,..

sounds like PFM to me,.

Pure F___ing Magic Wink

Never heard of an oil dipstick hitting the crankshaft. What's it doing popping up and down in the tube?

Do these engines have a lower dipstick tube? If so yours might be missing.

Weird, maybe the end is bent in a weird way? Try rotating it 180 degrees and see if it still happens.

I think you might be missing the lower dip stick tube. was the engine ever reworked? I've read tell that shops remove them and never put them back when rebuilding the lower end. It appears that you can insert it from outside of the engine so you could get a replacement.
