checking for forged rods

I am trying to figure out if i have forged or PMR rods, is the inspection hole the one right below the oil cooler? or is it closer to the bell housing. I see 2 plugs, but am not sure which one to take out, I dont want to remove one that might have coolant coming out. I am guessing i just need a 5/16 pipe plug socket? Thanks for any advice.

Thanks, i looked for my serial number at the oil cooler but could not make the first numbers, the first i could make out is a 5 i am hoping the numbers before that are 14!, my valve cover sticker is oily and gunked up from me spilling some oil while filing it up after changing it, i will get some brake cleaner on it tommorow and see if i can find it there, any specific location on the valve cover sticker? I would rather not have to pull IC pipe to see it better. My truck has a build date of 10/00 and is a 2001 f350, sold the truck in my sig a while back, because i needed a bigger truck to pull with. I am getting ready for some injectors but would rather not risk them on PMR's since this is my only truck. Thanks again!

Did you ever figure it out? I don't know which plug it is either?
Thanks
