I have been using my 262c+t daily. Pulling in to my shop and the oil light flickers and the gage drops to zero. No oil on the stick!! I don’t remember checking it when I did the swap.

Egad.

Drain the crankcase oil (if any?) then add the correct amount of oil and cross your fingers.

Then again if you've been driving it I must assume it's had sufficient oil, or else BOOM!

I know a B230 is 2 quarts out of 4 low when you corner and the light comes on.

Do people baffle or gate their red block sumps?

Doesn’t accomplish much if there isn’t any oil in the pan though.
