I have an early 3970010 block drivers side dip stick that Im using for my 383...I need to get an oil pan gasket for it...someone told me that they do not make 1 piece gasket for the older blocks...true?..if they do make one does anyone know the part number or can point me to one?
also Ive been reading and what is this about on the 1 piece having either the thick style front seal of the thin style front seal? how do I know which one Ive got?

The front seal for the oil pan depends on the pan and timing cover, not the block. Typically, oil pans from 75 and up use the thick front seal. 1974 and eariler use the thin front seal.
Aftermarket timing covers are designed for the thick front seal.
Felpro one piece gasket for LH dipstick and thick front seal is #1880
Felpro one piece gasket for LH dipstick and thin front seal is #1885
Both are in the $30-$40 range from Jegs or Summit.

I'm using an early 1969 block, casting number ...something...something...388. It's from a Nova SS, 350 4-speed car I think. Anyway, I've got a one-piece gasket in there, but I forgot where I bought it from. They are made, and you need to simply trim off the appropriate tabs to use it as either a passenger or driver dipstick oilpan design.
I just had a brain farT!....if my dipstick is on the drivers side...what would that be called? LH or RH?..I guess it depends on how you look at it..
NO, it's always left to right as you sit in the car. Drivers side is left, pass. side is right.
It's the same with ALL vehicles; boats, trains, planes, and auto's. Except with boats it's port and starboard.
