Oil capacity?

Ok time to change the oil in the truck. Was wondering how much oil Im going to need. My service manual says 10 quarts and 11 with the filter. I ended up geting the power stroke filter as you guys recomend and that gives me an extra quart. So then I should be at an even 12 right? Thanks again guys! Justin

I use the powerstroke filter and put 10 qts (stock with filter I assumed...) and 1 qt extra for the larger powerstroke filter. Now you make me want to go outside and check my manual...

According to my "1986 Light Truck Owner Guide Supplement for the 6.9 Liter Diesel Engine" says 10 quarts with a note that says, "includes one quart for filter replacement."

Didn't mean to come across as preachy, but I would go with 11 quarts.

My local wal-mart carries rotella 15w-40 in 2.5 gal jugs (10 qts.) so its nice to go in and buy one big jug, one quart jug and a filter.

Yeah thanks guys. I bought a service manual for the engine off of ebay awhile back its and original IH manual that a bus garage had up for sale so I snagged it up thinking it may come in handy. It says Crankcase capcity (without Filter) 10 quarts and then below that it says Crankcase capacity (With Filter) 11 quarts. So if that powerstroke filter holds an extra quart we have 12. I think thats right anyway but im not positive when it comes to the powerstroke filter as Im still a learning. I am going to end up picking the oil up from wally world though. I checked the other day and the biggest container they have of rotella is a gallon. I figured three of those and I should be good to go. Thanks again guys!!!

It's very possible that the IH configuration of the 6.9 used in busses and trucks had a different oil pan. I would fill up with 11 qts using the PSD filter, get the engine up to operating temperature and the check the oil level. You don't really want to overfill the crankcase and suck any more oil through the CDR than you already have to...
