Call CAT hot line have the S/N of the engine on hand. They will be able to look it up. Early 3126E's and up have 19Qts oil pan. So it would be best to call them.

You can also call a CAT dealer to verify. When there was confusion on mine at the local RV shop I called Freightliner and Cat and both said it was 19 quarts. Had to go to Speedco to drain off the extra gallon they put in but I got the oil analysis done so it didn't cost much plus now I have a baseline for my engine.

Here is what I also got from CAT:
19 quart oil pan is 6-8 inches (deep oil pan is 22 qts 12 inches deep)
