- 7.4 Mercruiser
1987 Sea Ray 268, big block Mercruiser. Went to the boat tonight to change the oil, when I pulled the stick it showed way over filled. Pumped it out and added 6 quarts of oil, I believe it calls for 7 quarts fired the engine, let it run then shut off to let oil drain back down to pan. Pulled stick and it showed overfull still. Dipstick is 14607 and with 6 quarts the oil level is at the one numeral. Boat is in the water and I have a slight starboard list that I don't believe is enough to throw the reading that far off. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
