    pull the shifter out and pour the fluid on down it. It is a lot easier than the usual setup. On the side of the transmission is a fill plug up above one of the PTO covers. Its a pain cause its up near the body so you can't tilt a bottle for crap.

    yep, the fill hole is on the driver side about half way up. i pull the fill plug out and dump the gear oil in the shifter hole till it runs out of the hole. it takes exactly 1 gallon if your wondering :waytogo:

    there is the metal dome where it enters the top of the tranny. push that down and turn it counter clockwise, then you can remove the shifter. :waytogo:

    btw, i seen you sunday, you were turning onto m66 south from tuttle road. i was with my buddy in his black k10.

    its real easy to pull shifter out, alot easier than pulling out fill plug

    this is how i fill my 465's also

    youl need a large pair of pliers to grip and push down and turn the sheetmetal dome thing counterclockwise- it sits on two roll pins in the shifter casting top of the trans case

    its real easy once youve done it once youll always do it this way
