Oil dipstick tube corroded...help.

my oil dipstick tube has corroded away and the upper 6 inches has broken off the bottom part of the tube that goes into the engine block.

can you buy replacement tubes for the ranger. mine is a 1994 3.0 supercab 4x4.

also, how does it connect to the block? does it just pull out or is it somehow threaded into it?

My 94 did the exact same thing, Im not sure how it comes out though. My dad took a piece of copper tubing and made it shove onto the old one. Its been like that for almost 3 years probaly.
