Yes. At least on a 124, there is very little space between the wall of the tranny tunnel and the fill hole. I cannot imagine getting any sort of bottle near it.
You could probably fit some tubing onto a salvaged pointy gear oil spout, and squeeze it in that way.
I had a gallon container of Redline MTL, so I used a small hand operated transfer pump. I think it was about $5 for the pump.

BTW, there is not enough room to get a typical hex key socket in there.
Make sure you have the tools needed to remove the fill plug before draining!

Best of luck.
