I've removed the battery box to paint it and generally clean it up and want to add some neatsfoot oil to the Hydrovac. In seven years I've never done this and I wonder how much ? Can you overfill it?

Thanks in advance.:)

a tablespoon is more than enough....
The oil gets wicked around the circumference of the leather diaphragm seal by cotton rope..
