.....CB...when I change oil in my C-14...I put in 4 and 1/2 qts. This puts the level about middle of the sight glass. No reason to change oil, and not change the filter.
Hope this helps. 8)

4.5 qts w/filter change does the trick.

The owner's manual will not fit in the upper oil hole.  Don't be silly.

If you do get it through the filler hole what would be the technique for checking the sight glass level?
