    Question 10 QT pan equals 8 QTS oil?

    Seems to me that if you have a pan that has a 10 qt capacity, you'd run 10 qts in it, no? Why is it that I've had people say only run 8qts? If that's the case why spend the scratch on a 10 qt to begin with?

    How many qts do y'all run in your 10 qt pan?

    My 468 has a Dooley pan and it runs with 9 quarts plus the filter for a total of 10....I think it depends on whether or not it runs a good windage tray... I dunno...

    Heard horror stories with 10 quarts in the pan, but always seemed to be linked to the lack of a tray (I use a Moroso flat tray).

    Because if you keep the oil away from the crank etc. it will help keep the oil temp in check. I used to see a 75 degree drop in oil temp with 11 or 12 quarts in a 14 quart pan.

    Ok, so by that logic (which makes sense BTW) If I have an 8 QT pan on my boat, should I run 6 QTS in the pan and 1 in the filter?

    Even with a windage tray I still run under the capacity for crank splash and so on. If for some reason you should ever see the oil pressure gauge flutter then add up. Some motors with pour return will actually over oil the top and not keep the pan full. So less is good for windage and more is good for oil temp! All is debateable as per the application. M

    Wow! I have seen the oppisite, But that could be due to app. I still stick to under better than over, as long as the oil flows right! M

    No expert, but i would run 9 quarts.... 8 in the pan, 1 in the filter/engine.

    I run a 12 quarts in my 14 quart pan, I'm getting ride of it and going with a 10 quart B&B pan (should be here tomorrow). Probably will be what i do unless straub has something different to say about it.

    We'll also see what the dyno says

    Shaun, what oil viscosity due you run at the dyno? I am curious and would like to know? M

    Skip similar to whats already said here , we fill the pan with solvent (or mineral spirits) to the bottom of the tray (measure as you go) mark the stick and call it good ,add a quart+ or - for the filter better a smidge under IMO Tom

    10 qts in my ten qt pan takes the level to 'just' above the tray...plus one qt for the filter makes 11 >that's what Milidon states.
    My way of thinking, however much is floating around in a running engine will drop what is shown in the pic to just under the tray. >how much is up in the engine???

    Below is 8 qts...and 'just' under the tray mounts.

    The formula for calculating pan capacity is as follows:

    Sump length x sump width x sump depth x .0172 = pan capacity.

    If you have a box pan then subtract the stroke of the engine minus the pan depth, IE: 8" deep pan and 4.250" stroke engine your sump depth would be 3.75".

    Our pans, B&B stefs are rated for total capacity including the filter.

    keep in mind that your boat probably doesn't run parallell to the water. it likely has some nose-up attitude that you'll need to calculate when determining how many quarts you can put in your pan and still keep the level below the tray.

    also, if you're engine is not installed parallell with the stringers, this will add to the up angle.

    so if you can put 8 quarts in the pan when its sitting on your work bench and the level is below the tray, its likely that same 8 quarts will be too much when the boat is flying nose high across the water.

    I run 9.5 in my 10 qt Armondo pan. That was the opitmal on the dyno. That is not including the filter, a large filter.
