What's the exact oil dip stick length for 1990 3.8l SC from top to the tip (not including the handle, only steel stick) ?

Looks like it's about a 1/32 of an inch short of 28 inches.

Thanks so much for the picture, as it's very hard to get parts for 3.8l where I live this will help me a lot to
make new stick. My car came without the stick :D

What's the length from the tip to the full marking ?

If you are going to make one, I'd suggest you do an oil change and then mark the stick as tested.

It's 26 1/4 inches to the full mark and 28 inches to the 1 quart down mark.

My original post was wrong - the dipstick is about 1/32 short of 28 inches. (The 28 in the photo - the 2 is on one side of the 28 1/2 and the 8 is on the other side of the 28 1/2)
