Yer,
they do have a fill point, and if memory serves me right, its like filling a diff. Pull a plug and fill till overflow.

someone will tell me i'm wrong, and we'll all learn :)

Re: fitting a tans cooler

The trans has to be warm when you check the oil. Ford actually specify a temp, which is something stupid like 58 deg c. The oil in these things expands heaps when it gets hot. If you fill it to the brim when cold it will be overfull by about 2 litres.
