I can't seem to find a plug to remove to drain my Hydro fluid. It has a filter which I will change and it calls for 20w-50. I will use the Amsoil 20w-50 hydrostatic fluid to refill. What is the proper procedure to do this?

BTW changed my zt28000 to Amsoil hydrostatic 20w50 last year seems to have smoother engagement. OEM filters used hand pump to fill units till runs out fill plugs top off tanks for final fill. SOP is on Hydro gear website.
