I have a 69 GT6 with a 68 TR250 motor. It seems oil is leaking at the base of the dipstick sleeve where it goes into the block. Anyone have this problem that can suggest a fix.

Thanks,

Rick

I had success with removing , cleaning the tube and block with brake clean , reinstalling with gasket sealant . Should be a snug fit . You will need to tap it in. If it's loose it will leak.
If it is hard to remove in the 1st place remove the dipstick and install a bolt in the hole to avoid crushing the tube.
You should check the operation of the crankcase ventilation system ( PCV). Any pressure in the system will push out oil
