fluid capacity???????

ok so after many nights of research and helpful hints from other members here, i decided to replace my thm200 with a thm350. in the process i figured for ****s and giggles to pull the pan and valve body in the thm200, just to get practice. after doing so i saw the problem, on the front driverside of the transmission after removal of the valve body i saw a two inch hole where a spring was located, that spring was in about 4 different pieces causing the bind up. since i already purchased the other trans, i decided to pull the old one. once i get the new one in i plan on droping its pan draining the fluid and installing a new filter. but first i need to know how much fluid to put in the converter and how much fluid in the tranny once its all back on the car. can someone help me with this info please?????

Is the 350 a new trans or used/junkyard? New converter too? or junkyard too?

If it's all empty, I add one quart to the converter then slide it on the trans making sure it's fully engaged. Then install it and add 4 quarts and fire it up. Add 3 more and then start checking it and filling until it shows correctly on the stick.

My T-350 (stock 2wd truck) took right at 10 quarts from a dry start. Same sequence as Jmark said, you don't want to dump it all in at once.
