You don't really have to pull the motor, you can pull the trans instead. It's most likely easier, you have to do most of the same work underneath except the trans is a lot smaller.

In all honesty, I'd rather pull it. That way I can work on it in the open way easier and I can get to the converter too. I don't wanna put silicone on the pan and then scrape some off by accident trying to slide the pan under the motor. Can check out everything in the bottom end too while its out so I can make sure nothing else is bent.

Yeah it's definitely best to do what you're most comfortable with anyway. I just thought I'd throw it out there.

Sorry I haven't been back to post what I found in there. The dipstick is fine. My grandpa was trying to jack up the motor and put a piece of wood through the oil pan, and when he did he bent the pickup tube and oil baffle. The baffle was hitting the bottom of the piston rods in 4 spots. I'll take pictures of it in a day or two once it's all put back together.

I got a new pickup and baffle, so tomorrow morning I'll start putting it back together. But yeah, it was the baffle.

I read about people have the dipstick hit though, it looked fine when I pulled the pan again.

Thank you though, I appreciate whenever someone gives an idea

Ahh, hitting in 4 spots makes sense. I was thinking like you, if it was hitting one rod it would sound like an engine knock, but hitting 4 would be real fast and constant. That was what made me think it might be the converter not all the way in but I'm glad you found the problem.
