Oil Level for 1960 Healey 3000 BT-7

The specifications indicate the oil capacity is 7.4 US Qts which is what I added last oil change. However, when I check the dip stick (after sitting a few hours) the oil level reads about 1/8” or so above the full mark. Could it be a non OEM oil pan or non OEM dip stick? Any thoughts? Thanks.

Oil level

Did you replace the oil filter and account for the amount of oil in the filter element? Second, did you turn on the car then turned it off after the oil gauge shown oil pressure and allow a few minutes after it was turned off to account for the oil level with the dip stick, assuming you have the correct dipstick?
