    Guys--

    I found in the TR8 Service manual that the 1980 TR8 holds 9.3 pints of oil. It does not go into detail if that includes the filter change or not. If I do the math correctly--4.65 quarts of oil. I know on one of my conversations with Woody--this thing should hold 6 or 7 quarts? I am using Castrol 20w-50 oil. Let me know.

    By the way--wife wants to know what I want for Christmas--The Wedgeshop has gift certificates!!!!!

    Thanks--Daniel Perkins

    Dan,

    It should hold 6 quarts. That includes the filling the filter.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks
