Should be fine in the T-case. Tranny requires synthetic ATF.

Something like 3.5 in the tranny. You basically fill it to the bottom of the fill plug. Some guys overfill it by pouring some in through the top (remove the shifter), to quiet the gear rollover noise. Then I've also heard that that's not good, that it puts excess pressure on some seals or something. I had only a little bit left over from a gallon jug when I did mine, and that was just using the fill plug, not overfilling it.

I forget how much in the t-case. Two or three maybe. The t-case has two fill plugs. You fill it up to the bottom of the lower fill plug for "normal" operation. If the t-case has a power take-off and you happen to use it, you're supposed to fill it to the bottom of the upper fill plug.

i disagree you fill it to the bottom of the top plug (the fill) for normal use

There are two fill plugs, separate from the drain plug. The owner's manual states that you fill to the bottom of the lower fill plug for normal use, and to the bottom of the upper fill plug for PTO use.

Some (maybe all?) 1356 t-cases installed in F350 trucks have a pto cover on the right side of the front cover half. These t-cases also have an upper fill plug in the front cover, between the shifter input and the front driveshaft output. The non-PTO 1356s don't have that plug. No idea about the 4407s.
