McMurry Windlass Oil

I just finished rebuilding my McMurray Windlass and have two questions...

(1) what type of oil should I use in the gearcase

(2) how full should it be filled

I don't have any info on this windlass nor could I find anything useful on a web search.

McMurray Windlass info - Cruisers & Sailing Forums

Note: nmuir is also a member here. Maybe he can answer the oil questions.

I suspec the oil will be a 90W gear oil, maybe a 140W
