    How much flud is the minimum for a np208 to not overheat? I clocked it 4" and lowered it 1" so it does not want to hold much fliud but dont want to burn it up.

    I know the manual says 4-5 but I think I only have 2-3 in it right now and I hope that will be good enough, since it is synthetic I think I will be ok but am looking for actual expierences.

    IIRC, the 208 doesn't have an internal pump, it's splash-lubricated. So, the oil level in the clocked 'case has to be high enough to cover the bearings & gears as much as they were covered in the stock 'case. If not, it WILL cook something.
