6oz in (not measured, X on the jack, vertical position, turning rear wheel while stinky stuff running out of fill hole)
I decided to forego the Moly paste this time.

195,759 miles. 3/20/2020. #42 Oil & Filter chg. Chevron Delo SDE SAE 15-40 Purolator L14612
Oil leakage found coming from Exhaust valve adjustment port cap. O-ring is flat.
Oil drained down to kick stand side of cylinders for the most part, but some oil ran straight down and dripped onto the lower fins..
The o-rings were from ACE replaced in May 2015 at 162K miles. Maybe under-sized...
I went to Honda Dealer, no "91303-KK3-830" in stock. Counter kid said would have to lookup the 12mm aluminum drain plug washers. BYE!
NAPA had the alum washers, HF had a box of o-rings. I put on one 35mm o-ring, a little fat. Honda is 35x3 HF is 35x3.5
Will see how this fat mama works! The other 0-ring replaced.
I used some degreaser and water hose pressure to rinse. Looks good.

Simply impressive Hans. I keep a written diary since I bought mine (used) in May '09 (4456M).
Anybody tell you that you do good work ??? (y)(y)(y)

I wish I would have created a daily ride log.
2007 I have only one ride in my "MC Rides" folder. Hal's ride Asheville to Chimney Rock > Lake Lure > a gas stop in SC > I bailed out in Brevard, NC. I was next to Kevin for awhile and his de-cel explosions were killing me.

Actually, I keep the same kind of records for all our vehicles, since I do all the maintenance anyway. Traded in the wifes Murano last year for a Subaru Outback. Gave them my notes to go with the Murano and they said this is like gold. I guess so since it keeps you off a trail already traveled ;)

Thanks for the reminder! I forgot to add last vehicle oil change.
