How much oil

Hey all...i have a 72 chevelle 454 in my 67rs...stock pan etc
I fitted one of the LOVELY flexy dip sticks but im not convinced its accurate
How much oil (litres please ) does it hold??? I gave it a change a while ago
and filled it to the mark but it leaked out of the dipstick neck in the pan...
so if i don't swap the filter how much oil is correct
Thanks Gav

Re: How much oil

system needs 5 Quarts = 4.73 Litres. What amount does your oil filter hold? Subtract that that from 4.73 litres.

hmmm. if you didnt swap your oil filer out.....how much oil did you put in it on the oil change?

Re: How much oil

If you are running a 1qt oil filter, fill up the filter and add 5qts to the block

Re: How much oil

Hi..... on the first oil fill, i fitted a new filter and filled the sump until it was at the correct level on the stick.It then blew it all out of the dipstick part on the sump where the flash flexi stick fits,So now i just want to drop the oil from the pan and poor it back in ,but the right ammount
