Below is a list of NHRA approved locking dipsticks.

Does anyone know any of the companies below that have a product that works well in a 69 Barracuda with a small block, 904 and a CSR carbon fiber transmission shield?

I have one of the Lokar locking dipsticks and I don't see how I can get it to work.

You can't get it to work. They don't fit with a stock floor. I had the same problem.

Mancini Racing lists dipsticks specifically for use with the CSI shield. Might be worth a look.

I had to cut out the stock floor years ago to get the shield to work, the problem is that it hits the shield.

I have a Hughes and it does the same thing. I just made a small extension to bolt to the tab that spaces it out about 1 inch.

I have this one, works fine as long as I keep my stock dipstick for actually checking the trans.

Wish someone would have told me that before i spent $100 on one.

I too run the cut to fit junkyard model. Cope Builds one to fit your application though.

The locking style is a GM dipstick, big deal.

I got a Lokar stick but for a TH350 with the short trans mount and it clears thr floor and seals well.

That's what I use. I also use MAPP gas to heat and bend the tube to whatever shape I need and then weld on a new brace. Remark the old dipstick for the right level and keep it in the car for when you actually need it. And remember you can only bend the tube in one axis.

I have the correct one in my car, the locking one (salvage yard locking GM w/ the stick part cut to about 10") in the trailer, in case it's needed in tech.
