They show the bottom pan bolt *is* the drain plug on this transmission. They tell you to throw away that drain plug an install a new one (why, I don't know). After draining the pan, they say to install your new drain bolt/plug (or I suppose the original, if needing a new one doesn't really seem necessary). Remove the pan bolts, an tap on the pan with a rubber mallet if necessary to break it free. Complete the pan inspection an filter change if desired, an reinstall the bolts an torque to the listed torque of 97 inch pounds. The fill an level check plug (which is installed in a horizontal format), appears to be located about 2" aft of the pans leading edge on the drivers side, in the case just above the pan itself. This gear box says to pump in 7.4 qts an install the fill/level plug. Run the engine an upon reaching the Trans fluid temp range of 86 to 122 degrees F, remove the fill plug. If fluid running out, wait till it drips an reinstall the plug. If no fluid drip, add about 1/2 quart an check again.
