    just 1 quart is all you need before you put it on the tranny.

    Depends on how large the convertor is but most convertors of average diameter hold about 8 quarts. I like to wait to add any fluid until after the tranny is in. Once it's in add 4 quarts then start engine and immediately add 4 more quarts then start checking fluid level.
