Re: Oil Level Light

>>Bill Murin asked about 911 oil level gauges.

Not only does the 911 have an oil level gauge, but the very earliest 
911s had no dipstick.  The idea was, this was a high-tech car that 
should not require its owner to get oil on his hands.  Well, the 
gauge proved temperamental (the car had to be level, just the right 
temperature, RPM etc.) and the dipstick got added pretty quickly.  I 
don't recall the engine number that this change was made on, but it 
was early in the '65 model year.
