The drain is at the bottom and I think on the side of the dip stick. Easy to find with your hand.

Well just finished installing a rebuilt transmission today. The original had run Dexton III for years and last year switched to synthetic transmission fluid and the gear started to slip. The shop that rebuilt mine said to use Dexton III that the newer stuff is too slippery. The rebuilt is nice, doesn't sound like a tambourine. Also replaced the drive plate.

I just saw this in the 40 tech manual(v.22) service bulletin #83, lubricating oil: Either Type A transmission fluid OR HD engine oil SAE 20-30 may be used.
