depends on the size of the joint, I think a typical BE shaft has something like 60 grams of grease at the most, would think and MA shaft would have about 2/3rds that.

that will typically fill the voids in the joint and have a little bit left over, so if you're filling up from a pit that'll give you a rough idea, you don't want too much flying about as that can make the boots come off if they're stretchy ones.

What about the inner joint would you use the same grease?

My shafts are off the car, would you fill cv joints then put cvs back on shafts or other way round?

I'd definitely fill off the car, that way you can keep the mess to a minimum and seal the boots up properly. It also makes it easier to work the grease into the joints.
