According to my records, the 1172 engine up to 1955 has the following capacities
4.5 imperial pints (Brit measurement) or 5.4 US pints without filter
5.25 imperial/6.3 US pints with filter.
Either way it seems you have overfilled it a touch. Nothing that a good hard thrash couldn't burn off in a few miles, though...
the older i get,the faster i went...
