Perkins 4.154 dipstick

Help! The last 2" of my oil dipstick broke off in the tube.

I don't think the broken part can get into the pan, the tube makes a hard 90 degree turn at the bottom and the piece is too long to make that turn. I will be looking for a 1/4" magnet to fish in there to try to retrieve the piece anyway.

My real problem is finding a new dipstick. TAD is my best source for parts and they don't have one. They have a 24" that they tell me cannot be cut down to work. Mine is about 17".

Looking for a dipstick.
