Goofy oil cooler dipstick, I think they are called redwing isocycle dipsticks. Looking for one that fits a 75/5 if anyone has one they want to sell. Can’t find anything on eBay right now. I’d pick up in person if you’re in Ohio, or pay for shipping.

Wow, never seen one of those. Is that supposed to draw heat up out of the oil?  Is there a liquid inside that helps convey the heat?  V..e..r..y  interesting!

@4949 I believe they are filled with sodium and that absorbs the heat? I read it has some aerospace applications but I think this dipstick is more of a period gimmick and that’s why I like it. I actually found and bought one today, was sitting in a shop in Vermont since the 70’s haha.

I got a garage full of 'period' goodies. 90° exhaust snouts, RT glove box extensions, foot boards, you name it !!

Let me send you a PILE  !! 🤣
