oil capacity on '80 NA 617 motor

How much oil will my '80 NA 617 (turbo-free ) engine take after draining.

Owner's manual is MIA. I picked up some Rotella 15w40. That should be fine yes?

Mike

Oil capacity is 6.5 quarts. You might have to put in a bit less if you don't drain it completely (oil left in the lines, cooler...)
