Storing a Transmission

I have a 915 trans. from my '73 that I want to store for a few years (in case I blow up the type 911 tranny I - uh - transplanted into my car). I drained the old fluid out.

Now - is there any advantage to putting new fluid in?
- It won't cover much of the gears w/o movement of the gears.
- It will reduce the amount of air space for water to condense in somewhat.

So, ??

And any other advice on storing it? It's in a garage in the Pacific NW, so it should be in a non-condensing atmosphere - mostly...

Thanks, folks!

Iwould install fresh lube and keep it high and dry, wrap it in tyvek or something like that. There are all sorts of nasty gasses coming up through floors.

soak it with LPS in hopes of keeping the mag rot to a minimum.
