MG MGA - How much is too much?

In preparation for a hilclimb event I accidentally overfilled the sump - about 3/4" above the top mark on the dip stick (oil was too clean on the dip stick - I misread the reading the first time!). I left it like and drove it a 145 kms to and from the event. engine didn't overheat, spray oil everywhere, etc.
It ran fine, so what is the maximum level you can over fill the sump before it effects anything?

You don't want the crank dipping into the oil and churning it up. As long as your oil doesn't look frothy when you check the dipstick you'll be OK.
