years ago when I was an apprentice oiler we would used a file to mark dipsticks with cold check marks. CATS were all running check marks. But the Detroits we had were all file marks or a small notch in the side of the dip stick.

Default Oil capacity

I operated/maintained many Detroit's in the Navy I cluding gensets like yours. Don't remember exactly numbers but if it is on a level mount 2 gal. Should suffice.
NOTE never idle any GM 2 stroke more than 15 minutes without wiping out the airboxes.
Doing so is a potential runaway when load and speed are added.
