international sells a kit to reseal the dipstick adaptor. as i recall, the kit contains a new nut, a paper gasket and some of the gray rtv like is used for the pan gasket itself. the kit does not contain one but you should try and get a new o-ring for where the dipstick goes into the adaptor itself. remove the dipstick from the adaptor and stick a 1/2" rifle brush in its place. remove the old nut and the rifle brush should hold the adaptor well enough so it won't fall into the oil pan. there is an o-ring on the inside of the pan that was used to seal the adaptor but you should remove that. then you put the gasket on the outside of the pan with some rtv and install the new nut. reinstall the dipstick with a new o-ring on that as well. don't quote me on those directions but i think it's pretty close to that. this was a few years back i did this on my truck put i think instructions came with the kit too. have absolutely no idea on any part numbers though.
