8BA Dipstick tube removal?

Any tips on removing a dipstick tube? Engine is in the car, seems like a tight fit between block and exhaust manifold…
Tool suggestions?

As always, thanks in advance!

Dipstick tube is 10 1/8”

Is this the correct set up?

Re: Antenna connection

Problem solved!
The problem was with the female cable end.
I took a small uni-bit and by hand very slowly turned the bit to slightly enlarge the opening.
The antenna lead then snuggly plugged in!

Antenna connection

Install of windshield antenna has come to a halt…
The antenna lead won’t fit in the female end of antenna cable.
Is there a transition connector for this?

Thank you for...
