Default 47RE Transmission Oil & Filter Change Capacity?

98 Cummins 24 valve, 190K.

Just changed oil and filter in transmission. Filled with 3-1/2 qts Valvoline ATF 4 synthetic. Engine mildly warm. Run thru gears. No oil on dip stick. Added 1/2 qt, still no oil on dip stick. Manual says 4 quarts is supposed to be all that is needed.

I am second owner. Could original owner have put bigger pan on? Is there any other reason for it to need more oil?

Default Stock pan is 4-1/2 qrts more than Haynes manual says.

Just kept on adding ATF until hit marks. Stock pan on cummins must be deeper than V8 & V10.
