Zetec Oil Level

Fairly straight forward thought..
An original Focus Zetec motor has an 8 degree tilt towards dipstick in the engine bay.

Mine is now mounted level 0 degrees in the kittycar..

Is it fair to assume my low level dipstick mark now becomes my high level mark

Don't think it matters really but just one of those locost thoughts ...

If you're using a different sump it's normally altered to be flat not tilted so I think you just read the dipstick as normal.

I have always just filled mine to the normal level on the dipstick the oil level in relation to the crank will remain the same although the sump holds less.
