Default transmission service Q's

sorry if these questions have been answered before but i couldn't find any info on the internet or forum.

A. how much fluid does the system hold. i have 8 L of 'Type F' fluid. dam expensive too but i dont mind it for my baby.

B. is there any tricks or tips i should observe while im in there?

c. how can i determine if its time to adjust the brake bands and does anyone know of an detailed procedure or shall i wait for my factory manual to arrive?

thanks allot,

The sump/pan holds about 3-4 litres....you'll have plenty.

Removing the pan means removing the filler pipe. Be ready for some grunting!

I'd adjust the bands just on general principles. Here's some info:
