    Any should work. I'd just tell them it's for a C1500 to keep it simple....

    On my motor I had to put a o-ring on the shoulder of the dipstick tube where it goes into the pan and then silicon the hell out of it. Now its dry as a popcorn fart down there now.

    Is it blowing the dipstick out? Or leaking where it goes in the block at the bottom?
