Until grease is pouring out...but then again I work for a grease company

In all seriousness, for most bearings and mechanical devices a 20% fill should be enough. You want enough to leave a good film but not to create viscous drag. I would clean the reel out and fill it roughly 20% evenly spaced out and then operate the reel for several rotations and then open it back up and check the coating.
