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.|
