Ford 9 inch Lube Capacity?

I filled my 9 inch rear end with some gear lube today, and i got a little less than 3 quarts in the housing. I was using a siphon pump and when i got to a certain point it was over flowing out of the fill hole, so i figured thats all it would take. I just want to make sure that a little less than 3 quarts (2.85 quarts) gear lube is enough for a 9 inch rear end.

(The 9 inch is the stock unit from my 69 cougar, and it has an aluminum third member with a spool.)

Let me know what you guys think, Thanks.

Sounds right. I usually put in no more than 3 quarts before it won't take anymore.

My early 9" housing with a later Bronco chunk housing takes 2 1/2 quarts (when it runs out the hole) so you should have plenty.
