Question How much oil should I put in transmission?

On this craftsman transmission I should get the new seals in today and was wondering how much oil does this thing need? I called sears and finaly talked to someone with 1/2 a brain and she told me everything I needed to know about the transmission but I forgot to ask how much oil to put into it. I tried to call them again and they all just say those are sealed from the factory and thank you for choosong sears and hang up on me. If nobody knows for sure I would like to hear your best guess, Im thinking 2qts.

It takes 20w-50 motor oil

Here is the numbers if anyone wants to know.
tractor 917.270821
transmission 319-650

Try it and see. I don't know. There's not a lot of info out there about what you're doing.

I got it working with the 2 qts in it but now the transmission makes a whine when you take off. Any idea what thats from? Would to much fluid cause it?

Probably air that needs to be purged from the system. There is a procedure for purging it I believe. I don't know the procedure.
