Yup fill it up until it reaches the the whole half way up. Anything extra in there will just blow out the vent tube when you are driving it.

The lower plug is the drain plug. The upper one is for checking the oil level. Proper oil level is even with the bottom of the check plug hole, or within 1/2" of that point. Drain the oil out of the bottom hole, refill through the upper hole until oil runs back out. If you overfill it too much, you run the risk of causing oil leaks by forcing oil through the seals.
Stick a piece of hose on the end of the gear oil bottle so you can feed the oil into the check plug hole.

90w gear oil is specified, but I recommend getting synthetic 75-90w. Less drag,(more power!) especially in cold weather, and better protection overall. Pricey, but you only need a quart.
