I have replace the oil pan (dented on severe road slope)on my '90 560SEL with an after market unit. Now at oil and filter change 8 1/2 quarts of oil shows at the minimum mark of the dip stick. The only thing I can figure out is that the new pan is of a larger capacity(deeper) although it seemed to be of the same size.

I've been puzzled for some time on this. Early morning after car has been stationary all night
the oil level is at the MAX mark.
Take a oil reading immediately after a run & it shows oil level around the MIN mark, indicating theres a lot of oil in circulation within the engine & not in the sump.
What's the correct proceedure to measure the oil level
