How much oil for a Milwaukee 6377 worm drive?

I have a Milwaukee 6377 worm drive which I got used. I don't have a manual and the pdf at the Milwaukee site doesn't seem to want to open for me. I drained the old thick, nasty, very dark oil and rather than add and check repeatedly, I was hoping someone out there could let me know how much oil to add?

Thanks, Bob

This is all that is said about oil levels in the manual from the Milwaukee site.

"Maintaining Oil Level
Check oil level before use. To check level, set saw for maximum depth, rest it flat on its shoe and remove oil plug. Oil level should be below max oil level line on tool (about 1/2 oz). If there is excess oil in the chamber, allow it to run out.

If oil level is low:

1. Add oil by laying saw on its side and pouring oil into the chamber. DO NOT OVERFILL.

2. Set the saw on its shoe as described above and allow any excess oil to run out.

3. When the proper oil level is reached, replace oil plug.

Use MILWAUKEE oil made specically for worm drive saws. Substitute oils may cause damage to the tool and be unsatisfactory in various temperatures. Check oil level frequently when using tool for extended periods. (Caution: Oil may be hot.)"

Hope this helps.
