Any more I don't care about that. Everyone I have to change I turn down the shaft on the actual valve to fit inside the modulators that "don't fit". You can even be crude about it and use a grinder or a sanding belt, you just need to be careful. The one thing you can not use is a file! The end of the valve is heat treated hard.

LM Car and FC dipstick are different by 2 1/4". LM Car is longer. Using a LM Car stick in a FC would leave the transmission low about 3 pts or more.

Someone else will have to comment on a EM PG dipstick length.

Here is the heater box body structure mount in my Greenbrier, also.

While we're on modulators, the listing at O'Reillys is for a regular Chevy PG. I believe it will screw in and fit but has different internal characteristics so may perform differently. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Has it been documented how many different Corvair PG dipsticks there were? I knew early and late were different
but never gave much thought to wagons, vans, and trucks. Or 60s.

My 1967-print parts book shows only two: EM/FC and LM. My'73 parts book shows a different LM part number but the application is 65-9.

Lane, thank you for the pics! I just verified, it has the correct dipstick. Top one is FC, bottom is from my 65.

That is what I use all the time. They work just fine as far as I'm concerned. I haven't noticed any really odd characteristics.

X2! I make the big car PG modulator work by drilling out the hole, but the spring tension is the same compared to a Corvair modulator and they work perfectly.
