Piaggio Ciao - Gear oil refill

Morten Schubert /

Hi all

Does anyone know how much gear oil I am supposed to fill in the rear hub of my Piaggio Ciao? It's from around 1974.

I'm assuming the hub isn't supposed to be completely filled with gear oil, as the refilling hole in the hub is located at the bottom of the hub. Am I correct to assume that I should simply fill it until it starts coming out of the refilling hole in the hub?

Cheers.

That other hole is the vent.

Not sure what other hole you are referring to?

In the image below, I've marked the refill hole. The other two holes are for mounting the rear hub.
