Torque converter fluid level question.

During an engine swap in my 96 4.0 auto explorer, I had to pull the Torque converter with the engine. (seized)

Of course during the pull I lost about 3/4 to a quart of fluid +/-.

I stabbed it yesterday and then I realized I didn't replenish the lost fluid.

Do I have to pull it and add the fluid or will it even out when I fill the tranny?

You have to add the fluid through the fill tube with the engine running.
