I checked both sides... but the Gil headers leave no room between the headers and valve covers on either side... This engine has a Holley Electric fuel pump (its carbuerated) and I followed the lines from the pump to the carb and I didnt see it ...

Any other ideas on a way to find this damn dipstick? Thanks

W.S. get a mirror and look down below the Gill exhaust ck.both sides for a tube runnin out of the oil pans that should end with the dip stick on top. also you usually put the oil into the engine thru the valve covers, but you are just kidding.

There was a screw cap that came out of the hole... Is this where the oil goes? Just use a funnel and start pouring right? then wait a few minutes and check on dipstick. then keep going till its in correct range correct

BTW I found the dipstick... Under the port side header pointed towards Bow of boat...

If that's the Valve cover, that's where the oil goes.
