Very much a defibrillated thread but I was wondering what folks consider the refill volume is for a Sprint with OD?
Manual says 1.15 litres no OD, 1.9 litres with OD. I refilled mine and it started overflowing early into the 4th blast of approx 500cc from a giant syringe thing I have.
Suggesting it took maybe 1.5 to 1.6/7 of oil
Does it need to be run for a bit and then topped up?
I've never concerned myself with what the book says, it probably starts with a new clean empty box. Unless you are starting with such, the book figure is irrelevant, no matter how long you leave the plug(s) out, you'll never get ALL the old oil out!
All I do is, 1) Ensure the car is level, 2) fill it till oil comes out the filler, 3) give it 1/2 an hour to settle and recheck, topping up if required.
PS, A quick addendum to Jon's comments above, the SD1 gear oil changed spec soon into production as it was found the original spec stuff made 2nd gear impossible to engage when the oil was cold. It generated quite a bit of fruitless warranty gearbox work for those of us working in BL dealers at the time! LT77s to this day and in all applications still run happily on ATF.
