Briggs 16 hp dipstick length needed

I need the length of the dipstick from the top of the metal cap to the "FULL" mark on a 16hp single cylinder Briggs engine. The PO broke the dipstick, repaired it and never affixed the cap on the stick. As a result depending on where the cap is located, it is either overfilled by a quart or a gallon low or somewhere inbetween.

Is this the dipstick that goes to the top of the cylinder head? I have one here that is about 17 inches. Is it the one you need? this one is top of cap to full mark is 15.5 and add is 16.3/16.
I just looked up and it could be one of 4 different numbers/ dipsticks. 2 long ones, a medium one and a short one. Which one are you looking for Richard?
