Old Trojan 1900 fluids

    I have an old Trojan 1900 that got flooded up to the top of the tires in Tropical Storm Lee. I drained the differentials, they had water in them. I drained water out of the transmission, but, I'm not sure how/where to refill it. It calls for dexron fluid, which is no problem. There is a pipe plug on the top-rear of the tranny.

    I guess my big questions are, Does anyone have this same machine or similar? Where do you fill the tranny? The torque converter is a separate unit from the tranny, but is connected with hoses, do they share fluid? I haven't checked the planetaries yet, what kind of fluid do they take? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    That pipe plug is the transmission fill. I cut a piece of garden hose and slipped it over the end of a funnel to get it in there.
