The TH350 takes 4-5 quarts depending on your transmission pan size.(there are deep pans that you can buy but stock pans hold 4)

Actually a TH350 takes about 10 qts to completely fill it if dry(including convertor). If changing fluid and filter it will usually take 4-5.

The best way to do this is, if the converter is dry (new). pour a quart or so in the converter. Pour another 4-5 in the tranny. Start the vehicle go through the gears, check the fluid level. Add a quart and check, continue until you are on the stick at this point add smaller amounts until you reach the level you want. I prefer to do all this with the car running (in park). Whatever you do don't just go out and pour 10-12 quarts into the tranny. There is no way to know how much it will hold for sure, if you have a deep pan, large or small converter, if the tranny is truly dry, etc... all will have an effect on the amount needed. You don't want to overfill the transmission either, this can actually cause damage.
