It doesn't really give a good description of the desired oil level. Filling it completely as insinuated causes oil to run out around the shaft. Does anyone know how much oil they want? Since the worm is on top only the gear is in the bath unless the reservoir is actually "full". The exploded parts view shows no seal around the shaft.
My first impression was that this is spam, albeit incompetent spam (he/she/it screwed up the url)
A quick Google search on the original post shows that it is directly cut and pasted from this 2010 post on the Practical Machinist forum.
So, yes it is spam.
