changing oil and filter

ya you prolly think im a ******* for asking this but when changing oil and a filter in a SBC or any enigne should the oil filter be filled with oil before installed or install it empty?

i filled the oil filter up and installed it and then filled the engine up and it seemed like the level raised after..

and what happends with to much oil in a engine?

It is always best to fill the filter when possible. You can't do it on all engines due to the position of the filter. If the owner's manual or service manual call for 5 quarts to change oil and filter fill the filter and count that oil toward the 5 quarts. It is not unusual to find that the amount of oil call for fills the crankcase higher than the full mark on the stick. You can put the required amount of oil in and run the car. after it cools down take a file and make a new line for the full mark if you want.

Some thing I didn't see mentioned that I just wanted to note. You probably already know. Put some oil on the rubber seal of the oil filter. Dont put it on dry.
