This sounds crazy and trust me I'm not.. I have spent thousands of dollars with professionals who tell me I'm OK;)

I put a summit 5 qrt pan on my BBC and put 5 qrts in and a new filter... so I go out to check it pull the dip stick and it just at the tip were it says add...looks like it needs another qrt.. So question is.. On a 5 qrt pan does it mean it can hold 5 or is that the max you should put in with filter?? Or should I have put in 6 Qrts ( extra quart for the filter)

No windage tray.. Engine is stock... But I did read that the pf1218 filter holds a qrt... So I guess I need to add another qrt to bring it up to full 5 qrts in the pan.....Right?

I've often wondered what would happen if you poured to quarts over the full mark, didn't know it, and drove the car? Would a main seal fail?

If you have the right stick for the tube, pour in the amount and later check the stick for air bubbles on the stick. If bubbles appear, one qt too much.
A tall filter, like a PH8 Fram, holds one qt, short ones hold a pint.
