    Oil Level Question

    I changed the oil and filter in my RXT last week ran it for a few minutes in the drive way check level it was in the middle of the two bends. Went to the lake yesterday to break in new S/C washers and when I check my oil level this morning it was a little over full. Any ideas why? Should I suck some out or leave it alone? Thanks Rick

    You should put the level on the bumber rails, rather then the trailor.

    I just rechecked level on both the bund rails and trailer looks good now I guess I will suck a little out and check it a couple of times this weekend at the river. Thanks Rick

    you should lay the level on the motor cover.
    Adjust the trailer jack till the motor is level

    Did you let the engine warm-up, idle it for 30 seconds, turn it off for 30 seconds, then check the oil?... Ron
