Engine oil dipstick tube

I'm lookin to buy an engine oil dipstick tube for my 2000 7.3 powerstroke. I kinda twanked mine while changin injectors. I can still use the one I have but it's kinda hard to get the dipstick back in once I pull it out. I'm in Jackson Michigan and the only place I can find one is the dealer and they want $60 (I thought that was high). I'll go there if I haveta but I was just wonderin if there's someplace out there that sells used or aftermarket parts like that.
tanx,

I too busted my dipstick. When trying to remove it the handle broke right off.
Was able to remove it with needlenose pliers and bought a brand new one from the dealer.
Its just as difficult to put down the tube as the original was.
Suspect carbon build up at the base of the tube?
