MTX-75 Drain and Fill Plug

How are we suppose to drain and fill the trans in this car?

I want to change it out from OEM to Redline or Amsoil

Isn't the O.E. MT fluid already a synthetic fluid? Why change it so soon? I don't know off hand where the fill/ drain port is, but I think it was on the bottom of the case.

The Ford trans fluid is the way to go I tried other synthetic fluid and went back to Ford fluid better and smother shifts just my 2 cents.
