I thought all Ford tractor engines 8N through 64 took 5 qts. including filter replacement oil. Am I wrong?

All of my vintage Fords hold six quarts (just a bit less) with filter.

Upon reflection, the 8Ns hold 6 qts with filter, as per the owners manual. The 172s closer to 5 1/2 with filter (owners manual says 5 with filter but this is not quite enough to fill to the full mark).

I usually let my engines drain overnight after pulliig the plug at operating temperature. I always remove the canister on the 8Ns for cleaninig, draining all of the oil in the process.

yeah.. if buying by the quart I grab a 5qt jug plus a spare qiurt when I do a 4 cyl oil change. I usually dump in all 6 and go.. it may be a hair out of the crosshatch.. but has never caused an issue that I know of..

So Dean a question for you. The NAA owners manual I have says 5 qts plus 1 qt for the filter so is this 1954 NAA manual incorrect or what. Note I say 1954 manual since it is not a reprint

Don't know as I've never had an NAA manual.

My reprint of the original Ford hundred series manual lists crankcase capacity with filter as five quarts but, as I said, all four of my 172s take about 5 1/2 quarts to bring the level to the full line.

Guess I should look in my 601/801 manual since the owners manual that came with them new covered both series tractors. Again this one is not a reprint so I will look at it later and see what it says
