Pete, I am not sure anyone knows what we are talking about anymore.   The seal post has sure taken up some ink. Going to be a long winter by the looks of it. Enjoy your Holiday.

Are you thinking because of the engine angle the oil capacity should be less? If so, you also need to factor in many marine engines have specifically designed oil pans. So, in most cases, oil capacity is the same for auto and marine for the same engine.


I have to admit Duane, I read it and thought the same thing Pete did

I think Chucky should post a picture of either his carburetor or his distributor or both next, for some what should we call it? CCF scrutiny

For some reason I'm sensing a Holley that looks a little different than the typical marine Holley for a 302. But it could be marine

Thanks for setting me straight, but... here’s a page out of a genuine marine maintenance manual. Must be some special? pan that holds...wait a minute...only 4 quarts? That can’t be right.

So...........why not just tilt your oil pan at a 15 degree angle with it off the engine and pour in some oil and see how much it takes to get the level where you want it?
