Wurth 630 V1 Tranny Fluid Volume

I am changing out the 15/40 oil in the tranny of our 2002 xstar and on the Hurth spec sheet online it said 4 quarts while the Mastercraft manual lists 2.5 to 3. I pumped out the oil, did not remove any filters or drain from the bottom (not even sure if you can do either) but I am wondering if these things might be the reason for the fluid volume difference. I will refill and use the dipstick as the guide but I am curious about the difference.

hurth is taking into consideration a complete dry transmission, cooler and hoses new assembly, where as mastercraft is going off a maintenance volume your never going to get all the fluid out of the hoses, cooler and transmission by sucking the fluid out the fill port.

Silly question here. After running for a bit when you check fluids it should be between the two lines I assume. Is it best to add the fluid with it hot or wait to cool and then add?

should be at or just below line when warmed up. When you check do it quickly after you stop. Too quick and the trans will drain its lines to sump and give you a less then ideal reading..
