The "Fill" plug is at the "full" level, so if you add until it comes back out the hole - then let it drain 'till it stops - it's full.

Actually a LOT easier than dribbling in a bit, checking with a dipstick & repeating until the level is right - then draining some out again when you add too much.....

A LOT of transmissions & rear axles work this way, it's a cheap & easy way to set a fluid level.

Luck!
