transmission oil change

Going to do a tranny oil change on my 62 190c finny 4spd. Could someone shine some light and provide me with some info before I do this. Firstly where is the filler located, and how much fluid goes into the tranny? I bought Type F atf which should be good?

You got a fill plug and a drain plug. Remove them both, preferably the fill plug first to make sure it comes off - it likely takes a 14mm hex/allen wrench. Fill it up until it flows out the fill plug. You may need something to pump the fluid uphill. NAPA has a nice suction gun for about ten bucks that I use for the job. Replace the plug washers - may be one on each or might just be one.

On the (right?) side, in the middle of the trans.

Always remove the fill plug really stinks to discover that you cannot remove the fill plug after you have removed the drain plug....

which exactly is the filler plug, is it the slated bolt like 15cm away from the drain?

I just did a 4 speed manual transmission fluid change on a 1968 200D W110. The fill plug is difficult to access, but it is on the passenger side near the top. It is a plug with a 14mm hex key (allen) hole. I used a quart pump from the local auto parts store to get the fluid up there. As soon as the fluid started to run out (you fill up to the fill plug) I put the fill plug back in. I used Redline D4 (Dexron III) myself and it made it so much easier to shift. It may have even had gear oil in it before. I think it takes about 2 quarts--can't remember now.
