I have a 7qt pan by Canton and a blue knurled grip FMS dipstick from Mustangs Plus. Will it read correctly? MP said it would but I have my doubts. I measured and the new dipstick/tube is the same length as my old one.

I've got the Canton seven quart (6 in pan, one in filter), p/n# ....610. Alex runs them on his race motors and frequently runs less than a full load

5 1/2 quarts in my pan and one in the filter reads just up to the 'ADD' marker on my stock 289 dipstick... 5+1 barely touched the bottom of the stick, Alex says 4+1 dosen't touch the stick at all

I have a similar pan from Coast. Actually it looks like the Canton pan so I wonder if it is just relabeled. Anyway, with the pan full it barely touched the stick. I ended up using a Dremel and cutting about an inch off of the tube. I probably should have cut off a bit more but it is now full at the add mark. You could probably do it so that it reads perfectly.

JAAAZY has the best solution to your problems. That's how I used to recommend people use their stock dip sticks with those pans.
