    Fill hole is a hex head plug right next to shifter levers.

    Fill from COMPLETELY empty is just shy of 8 gallons. SLight overfill isn't the end of the world. Make certain you're starting from empty by removing BOTH drain plugs underneath tranny/rear end. Leaving one or the other leaves about 1-1/4 gal undrained.

    There is also a dipstick on the inspection plate next the where your right heel would ride while feet are on the running board. Fill to marked level on the dipstick if any question....

    Just for the record, I prefer Pennzoil Hy-Tran....Been using that in my MF150 (Same tranny/hydraulics/rear end as your 135) since first change about a year after I bought it new....(change circa 1972....) Nothing but excellent service since.
    There are three kinds of men;
    1.) The ones that learn by reading
    2.) The few who learn by observation
    3.) The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves.
