dipstick level

Anyone notice you get two very different readings depending on which way you put the dipstick in? If the letters (MIN/MAX) face the block I get a lower reading than if they face away from the block. Anyone know which way is the correct way?

The side with the lowest oil line on the dip stick, doesn't matter which way you insert it. If the side without the min max marking is lower, just compare where the level coresponds to on the other side with the marking. It will end up being the same level if you turn the dip stick to the other side.
