I'm new to Wisconsin engines and have a couple questions. first is when I had my TR10D tore apart to put new rings in I noticed that the add mark on the dipstick with it screwed in is that there is only about a 1/4" of oil in the sump, that doesn't seem right since it's almost empty? Second is that even when it was completely empty I added 1 quart as it says and it shows over full by 5/16". Is this normal?

These engines take 1 Full Quart, I dont know what it is but they always read a bit over on most of these Dipsticks, I think alot have the tube rammed down too far in the block maybe?

 

Easiest thing to do is drain, put a quart in and make a little notch where the level lies and you never have to question yourself again.

I don't think Wisconsin has any crude oil deposits.
