302 engine in car with 4 wheels

Hey,

I was wondering what amount of oil the old XC Coupe Engine takes

its 1977 XC Coupe with a 302

Also i was wondering if anyone had any tips on starting a car that hasnt started for 5 years ?

Thanks

4.5 LITRES including filter
It's a Cleveland, Windsors have Thermostat housing on intake manifold.

Can't help you on the last one you could try squirting oil in the spark plug hole so the oil gets on the top rings.

Just remembered something you can buy an oil priming tool from a performance shop costs around $20 - $30 I used one when I rebuilt my Cleveland you'll have to take out the distributor and place the tool on the oil pump shaft use a drill to spin it around and this will get the oil around the engine.

Yep, she'd be a 302 Cleveland (XY was the last of the old Windsors).
Factory power output:- 202 hp(151 kw) @ 4600 rpm.
Factory torque output:- 268 lb/ft (364 (Nm) @ 3000 rpm.
Hope you find this useful (and get the car running).
