old syle gearbox, fill through large flat head or inspection

PostBy: incynr8 On: Mon Jun 14, 2010 10:06 am

I have an s20 with the old gearbox. I understand it uses straight 20 weight oil. I would like to change the oil. The drain plug looks like it will move, the inspection elbow plug comes out no problem. The large flat head plug high in the box doesnt seem to be able to budge.

Do I refill slowly through inspection overflow elbow port after draining? Or must that top screw come out? I do not want to brutalize unit.
