what is the correct amt of oil change with filter?
hi mike,sorry i have a 500,and no info at home.one of the 650 guys will help you soon.what is the correct amt of oil change with filter?
...........For checking the level on the dipstick remember that you don't screw in the dip stick. You wipe it and place it in the hole and read it. Screwing it in will give a false reading.
Thanks for posting this little fact! I searched the online owners manuals and couldn't find this information. It makes sence to not have to screw in the dipstick.......but you never know!
If you haven't done it, remove the oil pan (650 exclusive)and check/clean the oil pickup screen while you have the oil out.
What do you do about the oil pan gasket? Do you just make up a new one out of the same gasket material that you use for the engine? This is on my list of things to do. I saw the gasket was NLA.
I couldn't readily find an oil pan gasket so I just stuck the pan back on with some copper RTV. The same stuff i use on my truck differential cover. I't been leak free for over a year now.
