Hi all,

installed my Atlas, and dumped the recommended 2 quarts of oil in it... the level of the oil in the site tube is no where near the fill level recommended in the 'manual'.

For those of you with the Atlas in the same (or similar) application... how much oil did you settle on? I know of a few people who had plenty of venting challenges due to over-filling, but where did the oil level settle once all the venting had stopped?

Oh - TJ, highest atlas rotation.

So at 2.5 qrts you had no venting of the oil?

With 2 qrts mine is low in the site tube... probably only 20mm into the tube... and I didn't spill any. hehe.

yea... recommends to use 2 qrts, but I reckon it will take 3 qrts to get to the recommended fill height...

I think I will hook the breather up to a container/bottle under the hood to reduce the mess... maybe send the breather in the side of the bottle and leave the lid off.

I know a mate of mine filled to the recommended mark and spent the next 3 months cleaning out his engine bay every time he drove the Jeep...
