thanks jdq...im not sure how to respond to that...

and thanks jr for the cap update...good to know...it is usually so easy to change the oil on our cars, you just take a gallon sized bottle of oil and dump it all in...butur sayin maybe and extra half quart...now i have never overfiled a crankcase, but what happens if ou are .5 to 1 quart over?

Default oil

If you overfill it the oil could foam up or you could damage a seal.
