I don't want to go out and measure it, but the correct part number that should be stamped on it is F4TZ-6750-E or 1824405C1.
Units stamped 1820068C1 will cause the engine to be 2 qts low.

alberta 7.3: my dipstick has 1826628C1 stamped on it and measures 24 & 5/8 inches long from the bottom all the way up to where the metal ends and plastic starts for the small handle piece. Doesn't match any part numbers????
