get under the car, just foward of the transmission pan is a black rubber grommet, pop it off, you will see the TC. Have someone with a breaker bar turn the motor at the crank till you see the 'vertor plug..

Also, get a new filter for the transmission, just tell the parts douche its a for a 'stang(you did get a stang transmission put in right?)

Also, do you have a cooler?

there are some specifics in the tech articles

How do you drain converters that have no plug, like my Marauder converter? It didn't have a plug in it.

hmm...dont know right off hand, i think some of the Ford ones sold as rebuilds were thrifted and didnt have a plug. If Bart ever decides to call you back, maybe you could have him drill and tap it for a plug if there isnt one.
