New to the site.  I have a 1970 LT-1 that has been Top Flighted, Bloomington Gold, by the previous owner.  NCRS Tech Manual says that the words ADD and FULL along with a W (looks like an M as well) along with a black plug at the top is all that should be on the dipstick.  Only the external top portion of the dipstick is inspected by NCRS judges.  Mine say's ADD 1QT, FULL, USE SE ENGINE OIL 3862730, M. 

I have some LT-1 experts at the NCRS forum helping me with determining if the dipstick goes with later models or is correct for a 70 350 engine.  I know there are a lot of experts here as well. Your input is appreciated.
Thank you,
Sam

My 72 LT-1 is the same as yours, except it doesn't have the part number on it.

Thank you for responding. What I luv best about the 72 LT-1's...the have AC

My research say's I need one with a black plug that has on the dipstick ADD FULL USE GM 6041- M Quality MS Oil.  I believe dipsticks for the 70 LT (small block) had the black plugs for production and green plugs that were replacements.

NCRS instruction manual and GUIDE. IT's not a bible just a guide meaning it is not year specific. They ask you to pull the dipstick. The judges are not suppose to touch anything! Guide example 78-82 reads has a silver intake manifold . They don't break it down for each motor. L-48 color is. Corporate blue L-82 is silver. Ncrs at a chapter level read the guide and tried to deduct points because it was blue. I had to prove to them they didn't have accurate information. Remember it is only Bloomington Gold at the time of judging. Unless you put in a capsule at the time and don't make any changes. Usually members who drive their car will put back on aftermarket parts. Sad to say even Corvettes  @ Carlise people are stealing original parts off your car. Dipstick is on top of list followed by gas cap, oil cap, radiator cap etc.

Redwoman: I have been in touch with NCRS judges familiar and own LT-1's, same year as mine being a 70. Was informed that the 70 LT-1 dipsticks read: ADD o     o FULL   USE GM 6041-M QUALITY MS OIL.  The one I have is from late 71, 72.  Being the purist I am I want the correct dipstick even though the car has been Top Flight 3x, Duntov PV & Bloomington Gold.  Regarding Carlise, I was there 2 yrs ago when the 64 was recognized. My 64 was on display and learned about the theft that u are referring to, such as gas caps. We were told that a security guard would be watching the 64s on display. Fortunately,I did not have anything missing. People have no shame.
