79 F-150 PU w/ 400 engine
I have a dipstick that goes into the side of the oil pan on the
engine. There is an indent in the pan where the dip tube goes and its
held in place with a nut, looking similar to the nut on the end of a
steel brake or fuel line. It's a 5/8" nut. The problem is that the
indent in the pan does not allow enough space for any common wrench.
I tried some of those special brake line wrenches, standard open end
wrench, plyers, vice grips, etc. There is just no room for the tool.
Can anyone explain how to remove that nut? I am suspecting a
specialty tool, but could not locate anything on the web. My local
NAPA said they sell the O-Ring for that tube but no wrench. There has
got to be a way to do this but i sure cant figure out how.
