    I got about 7.5 quarts back in my 335. I had to pull the upper plugs located on the inboard side of the front tires and add about a quart into each side to fill. There are two plugs by each wheel, a lower one for draining and the upper one that I used to fill.

    You're welcome.

    I have the factory service manual and don't remember it in there either. After only getting a little over 5 quarts back in through the fill port on top of the axle tube, curiosity got the best of me and I pulled the upper plugs at the wheel ends just to see if there was oil there. It sat overnight and each wheel end was still a quart low on oil. From reading other posts on here it sounds like the oil eventually finds its way down there, but I felt alot better seeing them full of oil before running it.
