What fluid level on 400 with 4deg. tilt

Rather than installing a sbc on the standard 4degree tilt to the rear, (which puts the trans pan a 0 deg.) my motor is level which ends up tilting the trans pan at 4 deg. up to the rear. Question: what would be the correct fluid measurement on the trans. dip stick ??? Thanks in advance for your input.

Fluid level should be at the Pan mounting surface with the engine running. You could try placing a angle finder on the Intake/Carb mounting surface & jacking the front of vehicle up to find 4*, then fill to full on the Dipstick. Fluid level will be higher when you lower vehicle. A little over full wont hurt.
