Yup, by about 3/16 of an inch. 4 qts of oil from dry is just a tad too much. I always put in 4 qts when I change the oil and it reads just above the MAX line. Frank

On my 1275, the dip stick hits the bottom of the pan with a "clunk" when inserted. Is this too deep of penetration thus reading higher oil level than really there is???? What's the proper depth?? Dav
