Thanks Mike. After running the car yesterday for a spirited 30 minutes , the oil level was at a little below center on the dipstick. Approx 200 degrees. I assumed the oil level would be a little above the bottom mark on the dipstick after starting'er up today, but oil wasn't touching the stick.

Dave, if I added 3 quarts, there would be oil spewing out top breather hose off the oil fill. Ask me how I know....(a mistake I made a year ago.)

The amount of oil expansion is shocking. I run mobil 1 15/50 w/ added Zinc and Phosphorus. When I ran racing valvoline 20/50 prior to the rebuild, the expansion was far less....I think.
