Once you find the TC drain plug, mark your balancer so you don;t have to fool around with guessing next time. I got lucky as heck last time and the plug was right there as soon as I scooted under the car. I wish I had known to mark the balancer.

^^^^^ good idea, not crawling under there and doing it now though, for sure next time....I thought maybe I would get lucky but nope....though I will be crawling under it again soon to replace the bushing below...

So anyone else reading this that has an early auto transmission 722.1, I searched and found out there is indeed a bushing that goes on the Bowden rod or control pressure rod....the cheapest place plus shipping I can find them is about 9$ shipped.... Part number 1102770550 here's a photo below..this missing bushing explains why I have good shifts but occasion a strange shift.....check out the space the bushing takes is pretty much a banjo bolt with a pin inside it...

Glad you got 'er done and no chunks. I use a remote starter switch to bump the engine around for the TC drain. I'm old though with a well stocked tool supply.

Me too but I got a surprise this wouldn't go into gear....after reeving the engine went into gear....and was fine.....I got the car warmed up, and checked the fluid....nothing on the stick.....poured a quarter of a quart in....and now its right right under the max mark......I took it out on the freeway for probably 40 miles yesterday.....I imagine there was still an air pocket somewhere.....let it cool down and it went into gear right away I guess it was because of the low I hope....also yesterday I replace the missing bushing with a piece of hose and adjusted the linkages....again....I notice I have a tiny leak where the pressure control rod goes into the trans.....
