MG Midget and Sprite Technical - 1500 oil dip stick

just noticed that PO has filed new marks on dip stick can anybody help with measurements for dip stick ie length and distance for marks

mark 1500 on the road Preston Lancs

Here is a pic of my 1500's dip-stick with a measuring tape for comparison.

The engine may be from a Dolomite, but I expect the dip-sticks would be the same.

You can at least compare it to yours.

I'm not saying the Dolomite dipstick isn't the same dimensions as a midget 1500 because I don't know but different engines can have different sumps and dipsticks so I'd suggest conformation from a third party to confirm for both of you
