nsane']Two words: duct tape
Nah, im from new zealand, we use #8 wire 'round here

just kidding though, i wont really use it to hold the dipstick in! Its just one of those stereotypes about nz'ers, that we use #8 wire for everything.
No doubt it will get held in with insulation tape, like most other loose things on my cars.

my uncle has a toyota cressida that blows the dipstick out, he piped it to the rocker cover breather inlet, has'nt had a problem with it since
That would be a good solution, but i think ill stick with the insulation tape for the moment, cos im a bit lazy.

The REALLY ol' timers here in The States refer to it as bailing wire, as in, "It's held together with spit and bailing wire."
#8 wire = fencing wire.
Us younger ( ) kids prefer duct tape (aka "racer's tape").
