I tried to fill some oil through the frame, and the rest in the crankcase, but then when I started the engine, oil overflowed out the frame dipstick hole. I drained it all, and filled only through the crank and its all good now. Only use the frame hole to check the oil level. Thats what it says in my owners manual. 1.27qt is a little more than 1-1/4 qts.

"engine oil replacement".
3. Remove:....Oil filler cap......
9. Fill: .Crankcase
i don't mean to be a butthead, but it is in there.
don't put in 1.27 quarts unless you do a rebuild. you'll over fill. the manual says 1.16 with filter replacement. it's hard to tell how much we drain some times. put in a quart and go through the checking procedure. warm up the engine........ check the level and add if needed.
