Default Fairbanks Morse ZD 2hp

How much oil does the crankcase hold on my FM 2hp zd? The dipstick does not have a stop on it so i don't know how far to push it into the dipstick tube. Thanks Ron

Maybe this'll help. From the manual..
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
6. Before Starting the Engine - (a) Remove the oil gauge rod and plug in the crankcase cover and pour in approximately one quart of engine lubricating oil (Medium for summer, Light for winter). Replace the gauge plug and rod. The oil should register at the "FULL" mark on the rod. Do not fill above this mark. (b) Fill the fuel tank with gasoline (approx. 3 quarts). (c) Fill the water hopper (approx. 2 gallons). Hot water will assist starting in cold weather.
