Safe oil level?

Did a search but couldn't find anything specific.

I'm trying to find out where to mark my dipstick for the 'FULL' mark. Basically, just how close to the counter weights is a safe oil level.

Not that it matters but...

This is a 406, the sump is 8" deep. The integrated windage tray is 3 1/2" from the pan rail(bottom of the block) and the crank sits about 2 3/4" below the bottom of the block or about 3/4" from the windage tray.
