Fan Hub Oil Level

How much oil should be in the fan hub? Also, should there be a static leak if the level is too high?

I bought a rebuilt hub for my '52 flathead V8 and I don,t think it should be leaking regardless of the level, am I right?

Thanks for any input. When I call C&G I want to know what I'm talking about.

I'm surprised no one has answered this yet. I want to know also, and what oil weight?

5 Star is starting off with a positive reputation.
Turn the fan pulley with the screw on top. Remove the screw, fill with engine oil let set for a few minutes, now turn the pulley with the hole downwards let the excess oil drip out.

Now turn the pulley right side up replace screw and you done lubricating it.
