Help with craftsman transmission

Im hopeing to fix this peice of junk craftsman lawn tractor I have with the leaking transmission seal soon. Before I tear it apart does anyone know how much oil is supposed to be in it and what viscosity? Also is there even a fill plug on it, I didnt see a drain plug? I think all the oil has leaked out of it now.

Also does anyone know where I can find a break down print of it? Its about 2-3yrs old and is hydrostatic with a 19.5hp engine. Thanks for all the help so far.

Not, first, without more information! Post back with the chassis' model and serial numbers and, if possible, the ID numbers off of the transmission.

I found the owners manual and it says tractor model # is 917.270821

Hydro gear transaxle# is 319-650

It shows a break down of the transmission and shows a Cap, vent assembly, is this where you would fill it? Also I cant find anything on what type of oil to put into it. And how do I know how much oil to put in?
