Good engine oil tube?

Anyone have a lead on a good engine oil tube for SBC with the oil tube on the passenger side? I'm having trouble finding what I'm looking for online, maybe I'm just searching for the wrong thing. What I'm looking for is something like the original style where it's a full length tube that comes up above the headers and includes the mounting tab for bolting it down to the header bolt. The one that I got from the auto parts store last time was trash, too big to fit in the hole and mounting tab didn't line up well enough to use. I'd be fine with decent shape used or NOS as well. So anyone got any leads or recommendations on brands that work well?

I have the Lokar ED-5001 on my car with Dyno Don headers and I'm quite happy with the product.

I do have the Dyno Don headers so maybe I should just go with one of those Lokar ones. As for a zz4 dipstick I'll have to double check if my block has the proper mounting point for one of those. Anything will be better than the current one!

I also have a Lokar I got from Summit, it is XED-5001. Also have Dyno Don's headers, it's a good setup for me.
