I filled up my new engine with a new filter (the small one) 4.5 litres,I did a wind over to get the oil into the filter ect . Then a start, warmed up turned off, oil level is exactly at the top mark. Does that help ?

Had a tractor on Grandpa's place that two cocks on the pan. Initial fill till oil came out the top one. Daily check oil by cracking the lower cock. If oil came out, ok, if not then add 0.946 liters oil.

A radiator shop is a good place to take a leak.


I have no idea what I'm doing but I know I'm really good at it.
