we changed the oil sunday and in was surprised at how much came out of the pan. my guess is 3 gal.
i have 3 questions…
- What is oil capacity for a '60 4.2? i added 9.5 qts and level is barely touching the dipstick. dipstick appears original and is not damaged.
- I have attached a pic of filter that was in the canister, a Crosland 403. my replacement filter came from MOSS and is a paper element with no jacket on it. what is the purpose of the green jacket on the Crosland filter? is my MOSS replacement ok without a jacket?
- the filter came with 2 gaskets. i only found one installed gasket, it slips into the circukar slot which accepts the leading end of the canister. i replaced that one. the other new gasket is similar diameter but flat. i did not install this one anywhere. started engine and no leaks. where does this gasket go?
any help would be appreciated. my pontiacs will seem simple when i get back to working on them:)
