1700 Supersprint engine oil capacity - POBC

Evening all

Going to do an oil change on the Cat this w/e. Can't find my build manual - can anyone tell me the oil capacity for a wet sump 1700 SS Xflow fitted with Oil Cooler pls ?

Seem to recall it's about 3.3L (and will go off the dipstick) but helpful to know !

Thanks

HWS

7.2 pints (4.1 L) according to Tony Weale book.  Don't know if that is with or without cooler

Build manual (c. 1990 ed.) says 3.3 litres of SAE 15W/40, for "UK climate" - (does not appear to specify what increase might be required for cooler installation).
