Dry Sump Oil Question

It looks as if I made the typical Redline newbie mistake... I checked the oil level in my Revolt (without starting/running the engine first) it showed below the fill line and so I added 2 quarts...

I ran the engine this weekend, and after running it, it appears to be about 1/2 over the max fill mark. Given I had run the engine with the dry sump over full, will this hurt the engine in any way?

It seems to run fine, no oil leaked out out of the dry sump, but it did 'fog' a bit when I was first running it - this stopped and hasn't done it since...

Any insights would be appreciated!

Thanks!

Re: Dry Sump Oil Question

Drain it back down. You risk contaminating your MAP sensor. The vent hose that goes to your air box will allow oil to build in the air box and then the oil gets sucked up into the plenum and onto the MAP sensor. If you relocate your crankcase vent hose off the air box you can fill it to the full mark. Otherwise keep it at the add mark or a hair above. That is a Redline recommendation for the oil level. I hope this helps. You can call if you have any questions.

Re: Dry Sump Oil Question

Mike, thanks for the insight, I appreciate it. How can I tell if the MAP sensor is already contaminated or not? I suspect quite a bit of oil has already gotten into the airbox... when I was first running the machine for the first 10 mins or so, at full throttle a plume of white smoke would come out of the exhaust. This subsided after a couple of good 'foggings' and then quit completely.

Beyond cleaning out the airbox (by the way, how do I remove the airbox?) and cleaning the line from the crankcase to the airbox, is there anything else I need to do or check?

If I decide to route the crankcase line out of the airbox, what do I need to do to accomplish this?

Thanks!

Chuck
