Any chance you can post a picture of what is mangled ??
If it's the bottom end of the stick that goes into the engine the only way that's going to hit something is if it's the wrong dipstick and too long.

Cub cadet ltx1040 oil light on

Thomas, the oil light is on as a result of a signal from a pressure transducer that is seeing low oil pressure being developed within the engine. Unless the transducer is bad, it is telling you it is low on oil. A simple pulling of the oil dipstick while cold should show you a low oil level in the crankcase.

Check your crankcase breather (on side of block) . It could need cleaning/replacing and is loaded with oil/sludge causing this excessive blow-by to occur. Also check the tube running from the breather to the air filter housing. Make sure it is clean and clear.
