I don't feel like paying Merc $22 + shipping for the owner's manual just to find out how much oil it holds...

Stock motor? 8 Quarts? I'd check again. Try merc's website.

And let me just say that whatever ****ing genius designed Merc's oil filter bracket deserves to be covered in honey and tied down over an anthill!

"Hey, let's put the bracket like this, that way 95% of the oil filters made for a Chevy 454 won't fit!"

"Brilliant idea!"

Move em to the firewall or the transom Dock. I moved mine to the transom many years ago... Made myself a bracket and bolted it right up. Now I can use any filter and change it without spilling a drop.

8 qrts eh? Must be they made the pan larger over the years...
