I think you can simply replace that seal at the bottom of the dipstick tube. As for the "gold" color, how much of the engine appears to be gold? Many parts of MB engines have a gold cadium finish applied to them. I believe this was a form of protection. There is still evidence of this on my '83 TD. For my diesels, it is all over the fuel lines going to each injector.
