So I put in 15 qts, and the oil registers up on the wire 3/4 in, after checking and waiting the required time for drain down. (which is very hard to read) How do I ever know when to add oil if needed? Are you saying Ford make the dip stick too long?
I put in 13 qts and the oil level reads in the middle of the bulb. 14 qts brings it right up to the max mark. Thats where I'm running mine now. It's easy to read, and easy to tell if I need to add. At this time with 10200 miles and two oil changes, and an outstanding report from Blackstone Labs, I guess I'll continue to run it that way.
