Oil dipstick broke- HELP

1987 international, 6.9l idi

My engine oil dipstick broke and I'm having trouble finding a replacement. I'm trying to get on the road asap for work and the local shops cant get one in until next week sometime.
I've considered just draining and refilling the oil, but it leaks so I need the dipstick to check oil levels every morning of the drive to ensure its kept full.

Anyone with a similar engine mind giving me the measurements of their dipstick so I have something to go off of?
I've misplaced my broken stick somewhere so I cant measure my own.

Sometimes engines have different depth oil pans. Do you know if that's the case with your engine?

If there's only one depth oil pan, and you know the part number (assuming you do since you already contacted a dealer), then why not shop around and get it overnighted / 2nd day air to you?
