Default manual transmission fill & drain plug locations

OK, sorry for the complete newbie-ness of this, but...

I'm trying to change my M/T fluid for the 1st time. I've searched this forum for a diagram, picture, video, sketch of where the fill and drain plugs actually are located for the Gen 1 manual transmission. I guess the word "manual" really complicates things too because of RTMF. Anyone know of a post or link to a good picture or diagram?

I'm doing the rear diff too, and the video link was exactly what I would really like for the tranny...

I'd pull my hair out, but it fell out on it's own :-)
Thanks,
John

Yep, helps immensely. I actually remembered the San Leandro site that has decent exploded drawings, (see attached) but still didn't really clear it up for me. There's quite a few bolts there that could qualify as drain and fill. (in my mind anyway)

It's drip draining now. Back to work!

Thanks alot!

John
