    No, it should be above refill line. Refill line means it is a quart low.

    if your gearbox is dry, look in the manual for the correct amount of oil. Fill the box with that amount. Put in the dipstick and make a mark where the oil level is. Now you have a permanent high level mark.

    Not a gearbox, a 45 oil tank.

    The tank should never be full, there must be an air space to allow for expansion due to operating temperature.
    The engine will run as long as there is any oil going to the feed pump, this is not like a car engine where the pump pick-up must be covered. If the oil level is low the oil temperature will rise but the pressure in the engine will continue.

    If you are running a servicar install a square shovelhead oil tank under the seat with a dip stick and filter all in one and gain the extra space for gas. Just My 2 cents worth.
