I'm wondering how long it has been ran with barely any oil, maybe the previous owner ran it that way as well? Hopefully it didnt create any problems...

Quick update... I decided to do an oil change, its been registering on the dipstick r
Right where I'd think it should. I put it on the lift, pull the plug, and only a quart and a half drained out... 😵 so after filling it back up with 4.75 quarts of 10w40, its running perfect. 40lb oil pressure at idle, 65 while driving, ticking happened upon first start up but quickly went away, the thing is running excellent. Its registering above the hot mark on the dipstick so I just scored the dipstick so I know where it should be. Also while it was on the lift I did a soft steam clean to the undercarriage, specifically focused on cleaning oil and fluids off the motor and tranny to see if I have any leaks. So far it is still dry as a bone, I'm tickled pink, thanks again for all your help folks!
