    Default How much oil

    I am doing a oil change on my 77 hallett with a 460bbf. When i purchased the boat it only had 3hrs on it. Thew motor was new. The old owner had changed the break in oil just before i had brought the boat. I have finally put 4hrs on it since i brought it. Sad i know but with work and every day stuff not much time to take it out. So i started draining the oil and i am up to 12qts. I was told that it had a 10qt pan. The old owner showed me were he keep it on the dipstick but is that right! Sorry for the stupid question but just want the right amount of oil. Thanks for the help Travis

    Travis If the oil does not appear contaminated (oil or water) causing the level to have been increased , it could have simply been over filled , what pan is on it ? is it a box style , or the common Ford front sump jet? the type and or brand should reveal what the capacity is Most "Box style pans are typically 10 qt, OE pans can hold 5.5 to 6 (#s don't include a filter capacity) Most 12 qt pans will have "kickouts on the bottom edges. A pic would help Tom

    ps once its established as to what pan it is and the right capacity is "restored" then you can check the stick and re mark if neccesary

    btw the pic is a customers motor in for engine work and has a "box" pan , check out the itty bitty oil filter some "shop" installed for him on his last oil change

    Other than the oil being black i see no signs of water. No milky color. I will go out and snap a few pic's. The pan looks like a dooly its gold in color. I will be back with pic's. Thanks Travis

    Ok here are a few pic's. I looked through the paper work on the boat and it only says oil pan. The paper work for parts shows 10qts of sae30 oil. This was from a shop in campbell ca. Gerald Steiner machine shop. back in 1981. Travis

    Looks like an older 10 qt "Dooley" to me (imprinted DE) I'd level out the boat triler with a little "bow rize" put in 9.5 to 10 qts , mark the stick and then add one more for the filter call if you need help Tom

    I don't understand. There must be boaters out here that don't like fram filters. By some of the post i see no one leaves there oil in long enough to use the filter. LOL

    I'll start painting them black.LoL You can get them anywhere and it's better than not changing it. Besides its a boat to go out on the lake and have fun. I wonder how many of the filters are made in the same production plant. Travis
