Trans fluid/ speedo gear install 700R4

Hey guys, just a quick question. I am planning on installimg the correct speedo gears on my 700R4. When I take off the tail shaft housing, how much fluid will leak out? It doesnt seem like it would be all that much, but I want to be prepared. Thanks and forgive the stupid question.

The only stupid question is the question that has not been asked.

Amount of oil leakage depends mostly on how low the tail end is relative to the transmission. The lower the tail end, the more escaping oil you will have. If the tail end is high enough so that the oil drains into the transmission, all you will get is a few drops.

Thanks so much for the reply. I know that their isnt a massive amount of fluid in the tail shaft houseing. the only need for it to be there is to keep the speedo and drive shaft yoke lubricated. I was just unsure if my trans would completely drain. Ill try lifting the rear and keeping the front on the ground to aid in retaining fluid.

Thanks again for answering my question!!!
