How much extra oil do you need with the kit?

I originally posted last spring about the transadapt kit leaking from I blown out pin hole in the casting, and they sent me another right away which took care of the problem. I used cheap ebay 10 AN fittings which worked well for awhile, but late this summer I've developed a small leak that I can see on the garage floor...a drip, maybe a half a teaspoon after I shut the truck off and it sits for awhile cooling down. When I inspected I couldn't tell exactly where the leak is, just generally wet, you know the way a leak will blow around and spread from the wind at road speed. Most likely the fitting? Anybody else had an issue with their fittings?

I installed on October 11 2020, so just over a month. Just used what came with the transdapt kit. Only mod was some hose clamps. So far so good, no oil loss. Not a lot of time on it yet so take my anecdotal evidence fwiw.
