Oil dip stick length.

Hi all.
I am refreshing a 2.0 twin cam engine. It has a 131 miafori engine with a argenta sump.
The argenta sump is the flat wide one that wings out on the left side looking from the front of the car.
Problem is the dip stick is missing. I have seen a few dip sticks on ebay but they are international, about 50 inc delivery and not sure they would fit as my engine they have to negotiate the space between the distributor and a guy croft twin 40 manifold.

I have a suitable rod and the rubber seal and quite happy to fabricate the dipstick but I dont know the dimentions. The argenta sump is flat and shallow and has different (shorter) oil pump compared to the normal sumped engine.
Does anyone have a twin cam with argenta sump that they could take some basic measurements for me please?

Only other option is to drop the sump which may end up leaky.

Thanks

John
