Being the guy I am, I am keeping the pic of your color scheme and am going to shamelessly have it copied if I ever repaint my C172H which is something floating around in the back of my feeble mind...

Now I have the answer: The original dipstick for my 172/O-300-A is part number 539779 and that is what is in it and has no slot for the "D" ring in either the dipstick or the dipstick holder. That part number has been superceeded by part

My dipstick is stamped with TCM part no. 539779. Based on some SIL's I've found that number has been superceeded by part no. 628413A1. Haven't found a picture of one of those yet to see if that number uses the "D" ring instead of o-ring.

I flew it this morning early.Super smooth and flew over a decent sized lake low=fun. When I landed I cleaned all the bugs off of it after a week of flying. 93°F in this picture. The wheel pants require bug removal just like the wings.

Up early today to get an instrument lesson in before it got super hot. 3 ILS approaches, 2 holds and a GPS approach at the home field to finish the flight. Good times.

I had the same problem with my C172N, O320H2AD w/ Powerflow system. #3 cylinder loses some cooling airflow due to the oil cooler SCAT directly behind it. The cooling lip is a Cessna modification to the cowling that is installed in the lower cowling o
