you can google manuals most of the time and view them in PDF formats.

Its a Mopar trans. Look for a Dodge manual.

Usually says on the dip stick what fluid to use. My 904 which is a lighter duty version of the 727 uses Dextron. Chrysler trans are usually checked in Neutral, hot with the engine running, e brake on. Most trans are checked in Park.
I think it says that on the dip stick too.

It should hold 8-10 quarts if it was dry. That would be a trans that just came from a rebuild. 4-5 quarts if you change the fluiid. Look for a notch or two on the dipstick, that would make the fluid. If there are no marks at all, I would put enough fluid to get it a couple inches up the dip stick- hot, in N, with engine running.
You might check the CJ8 forum. They have a thread on CJ8 postals.

This link should help you out http://www.postal-jeep.com/
The DJ's were both right and left hand drive, most had the straight 6 with 727 tranny, not sure on the rear axle it wasn't heavy maybe a 20.
