    My Service Manual states:

    4.5 US quarts Total Capacity

    3.2 US quarts without oil filter replacement when changing oil

    3.3 US quarts with oil filter replacement when changing oil
    I normally put back what I take out when changing the oil and try to end-up with the oil level in the middle of the dip stick. With that said, I am concerned when I change my oil and extract more than 2.25 quarts (as opposed to what the Service Manual says). When this has happened in the past, I have cautiously snuck-up on the dip stick starting at adding 2 quarts, turn the motor over, let sit for five minutes and then check the level in the water--adding more if necessary.

    So what this means is that we cant get all the oil out on the change?

    Yep.

    It helps to have the nose down when extracting. I turn my ski around on the lift. I've also just lowered the trailer jack about six inches too.

    Personally, I change my oil a lot more often than the manual calls for. It's only around two quarts at a time and makes me feel better when I see the Pet record 8600+...

    The way the oil pan is it get s deeper in the middle and there is a plate over the middle that probably holds about a quart itself. You won't get but about 3-3.5 quarts out of it.

    I've never pulled more than 2.25 quarts out of mine unless I had serious GIO. Didn't matter if I was nose down, ass up, bumped the starter with the half throttle, was standing on my head and holding my jaw just so...

    I just change mine more often than normal. Every 10-15 hours and I feel better about beating the sheeite out of her.

    my buddy removes 1 more quart by removing the 4 spark plug wires so the motor wont start, remove the oil filter and bump the start button, you have to put a container where the filter was to collect the oil. this is if you want to get all the oil out of the motor or if your switching to a different oil and dont want them to mix.

    Guys sorry but no way am I going to turn this motor over and risk starving the bearings at all to get a little more oil out. I got over 3 qts out by pulling for a while and waiting, pulling more and waiting, it did take a couple of hours but I had time because I was doing other things in the shop and when I thought about it I would go pump on it. I got a little more each time. Dont starve your bearings guys!!! Please....its not worth it....
