Universal 11 Diesel Engine

Hello,
New old boat, it has a Universal 11 engine in it (1982 Tartan). I want to change the oil and I am looking for the engine manual to find out how much oil to put in it. Does anyone know where to find the manual or how much oil goes into that engine?

Thanks,
Kim

Is it the universal 5411 engine, if so:

The oil grade is specified in the manual for the engine. If you do not have the manual I have posted the link to a pdf copy for you.

http://www.ewmanchester.com/CalDocs/...s%20Manual.pdf

Refer to manual page 3/pdf page 4. In the chart above half way down it says to use SAE 30 (CD) or 10W40 heavy duty diesel lubricating oil. Oil capacity of the 5411 is 2.2 QTs so buy accordingly. But keep in mind the oil chang procedure; you will extract the old oil through the dip stick so you won't get it all out. Hope this helps!

Rockter will become famous soon enough
Whenyou re-fill, take the level (slowly!!!) to the upper mark on the dipstick, start the motor for a wee while, let it settle for about a minute, then check it again, and top it up to the upper mark again.
It's fairly easy.
