Default Engine oil capacity/1404

While changing the oil, I read that it holds 3 quarts. After adding the oil, I noticed that nothing was showing on the dip stick. While draining the oil, I noticed that there was what looked like a smaller pan attached to the bottom of the main one. Is this a modification that was performed at one time and now it takes more oil?

You're right. I forgot the oil filter. But, have you seen what I described on the bottom of your pan? I'm curious. If need be, I'll go out, remove the bottom and get a picture of it.

Might have been modified to hold more oil which would allow the cat to run on steeper terrain. Post a pic.

The 1404 I used to own had that deep sump oil pan on it and I figured it's function had something to do with running at steep angles. I think I put about 5 or 6 quarts in ? I let the dip stick determine the amount of oil.

the manual posted in the brake thread just below states 4 quarts 5 with filter.

Just picked up an new to me imp, It has a pile of manuals I will dig into those to see if there is a mention of the deep sump.

My advice is look close for a filed notch in your dip stick to see if perhaps it has a different fill mark.?
Just guessing
