This looks like hardly any oil when you put it in the case, but it just needs enough for the lower gear to pick it up and smear it between the gears. Too much and it will begin to leak through the drum seal. The bushings for the drum won't benefit from the oil, in fact the support side of the drum receives no lube at all. Adding another 6 oz probably won't be a problem, but might make a mess. If you have winch rope, it could discolor it if it leaks through the drum onto it.
