    Rxtx 255 oil level

    I can't seem to find the answer to the right oil level mark so have to ask. Some seem to say in between the two bends on the dip stick and some say up to the top bend. What should it be?
    Cheers

    I'm looking for lost rpm since oil change (200/300rpm down) its reading right up on the full mark in fact a little over it so will pull some out and see what happens.

    I understand your concern but, full to half full on oil will NOT make a 300 rpm difference, you've something else going on. The usual suspects are SC slip, impeller damage, wear ring slipping/damage, pump bearings, pup stator vane damage, etc, etc, etc.........

    Good luck
