Engine is a 22r in a buggy. I picked up some new oil, a bottle of HighTack, and a 51515 filter. I am told the 22r should hold 4.5 quarts with the stock filter. With the 51515, which I’m told is an optional bigger filter, and the turbo that is on it, I’ll put in 4.5 quarts of oil, and a half quart of HighTack for a total of five quarts. I’ll draw a line on the stick at this point (once the filter is full) for future reference.

The gauge is Mechanical.

It loses oil pressure on steep uphills. The dipstick reads right in the middle of safe. I really hope I don’t have to drop the pan and rebaffle it. That would mean pulling the engine, and I don’t have time for that right now. I am gone to work in Alaska and am planning a wheeling trip when I’m home for a week in early June. I don’t plan on pulling the engine while I am home. I guess I’ll see how the new oil, filter, and HighTack work when I get home.

Are there any factory dry sump systems that will work with these?
