Any one know how much oil is put in a British leyland engine diesel 1500 approximate year 1980
Dip stick not on it when purchased 

 

According to the manual, 4.7 litres (including filter), or, in 'real money' 8.25 imperial pints.

 

If you would like the full workshop manual post me your enmail adress and I'll send it over to you.

About 8 1/4 pints about 4.7 litres, assuming it jqas a standard sup, and not a deeper one, as fitted to some engines designed for non vehicle use.

 

A word of warning - do not try and run the engine without a dipstick in it, oil will spit out everywhere, don't ask hopw i know!!

 

Edit: Alan de E beat me to it

A dipstick would be useful, not just to prevent oil spurts.  Mine took a lot less oil than I was expecting would be needed on the first full change and I could have easily overfilled without a check.
