Default 196 oil capacity

Hey guys, I know this is a stupid question....but, whats the official oil capacity for the 196?

I looked through engine specs, forums, etc. And come up with no for sure number. I obviously can make a pretty close guess, but I'm curious as to how much you guys would put in yours.

Thanks! I put 5 in then a pint of the zinc treatment and the oil level on the stick is halfway up the "full" lettering. This sound close enough?
