I found that on a 722.4xx transmission the correct dead cold level is achieved when the fluid is at the pointer mark of the curled end of the dipstick which is approximately 10 or 12mm below the lowest mark of 30C.

Really makes the trans behave correctly. When overfilled I used to get a whine at startup, not after new fluid/filter and correct level. I believe the 722.3xx has it a bit different - somewhat like 5 or 6mm below the 30C mark on dead cold
