Is the oil level in the glass eye correct when it's hot, or when it's cold?
Not accurate with motor running... but if the engine is warm but off it'll be accurate pretty quickly after shutting the engine off.
If oil is cold it may take longer for it to be accurate after shutting the motor off (higher viscosity).
Oil will change density by about 6% between cold and operating temp... given that the motor holds about 3 and a half liters the difference between cold and hot is roughly the same as a .200ml volume difference...
