Drain out the excessive oil until it is properly indicated on the dipstick.
Look for a blown seal and reply back.

I'd just drain it all, and refill with the correct amount.

Then punch your 'friend' in the face.


If the knocking continues after that, you might have burned a bearing.

I can't believe 10 quarts went in so easily that he did not notice something was wrong! :)

Well, that is at least twice the amount required for that engine. If the engine wasn't ran for long, and the excess promptly drained, you may be ok, but the knocking you mentioned is a bad sign. If it was driven and/or brought up to operating temps, its probably going to need extensive work. Or a new owner...

<edit> oh yea, and then go punch your friend in the face.

@Hungrycat - how do you know it was a 'he'?
