On my plenum, a BillL special, the oil dipstick is not in the plenum area. I believe in his photo the dipstick is behind the large orange ducting. At least on a O-320, that is how it works. Here is mine overall, but does not show the oil dipstick. I will see if I can find a picture of it.

It's been a few years since youve built it. Hows it working? Anything you'd do differently?

I wish you would consider at least making the front baffle including the inlets for an IO540. I would be your first customer.
