These seem rather basic, but believe it or not, the Shop manual says things like "drain the transmission" and "fill the transmission" without a picture or explanation.

1. I am assuming that there is a drain plug that drains 100% of the fluid
2. I am assuming that there is a fill plug which is a #$#$@@ to fill from a straight bottle.
3. I am assuming that you do not have to drop/loosen a plate ala Automatics
4. I read elsewhere:
a. oil capacity is 3 pints, and
b. "synthetic (Red Line, Mobil 1, etc.) 85-90 wt. gear oil" should be used. Can I use 85-145, which is also available?

thanks for your patience.

If you look at the passenger side of the transmission case there are two pipe plugs. The top one is to fill, and the bottom one is to drain. I allways fill mine with a pump and hose.
