Default Front exhaust manifold/dipstick ?

Ive got a plog Im trying to put on, but the oil dipstick is in the way of removing the original front exhaust manifold. How would I go about removing the dipstick and putting it back in, or just moving enough to be out of the way? Im a noob to bolting stuff in myself obviously, just dont want to accidently create a problem.

The only way it is held in is by that bolt that holds the manifold on too. Once you pull that bolt, you can pull the dipstick tube up and out.

What I did first was to take a rag and wipe some of the gunk off around the base of the dipstick (didn't want anything accidentally falling in) and I put a little dot with white-out so I could easily see where it went back in.

Cool, cool. Heard it was easy, after doing some more reading I was just wondering if getting it back in the block would be a PITA. Luckily, doesn't sound like it isand I got some car guys who are gonna help me. Thanks
