Torque converter plug?

Doing a fluid / filter change today. Took the inspection plate off expecting to see a 1/4 inch drain plug on the converter. Not there? Am I mistaken thinking it should be visible from there? thanks twodot.

harley, it is a 97, F350, four wheel drive. I also can't find a drain on this tc. Is there any other way to get all or more of the fluid out? thanks

ohh yae there is a way,drop the tranny and pull the tc...you wont get all of it out if you dont pull the tc.well i think there is a way,you have two lines on the passenger side that go to the coolers..well one line goes to the radiator and one to the external cooler,disconnect the two lines from the tranny and start the truck.holdin a bucket under there of course.i think that is the only way.

Got it!! Drained pan, replaced filter. Put pan back on and poured in 8 quarts fluid. Removed rear tran. fluid line. Started and ran truck while catching fluid from rear line in bucket. Caught about 6 quarts. Put line back into trany. Filled up until stick said full. OD light was still flashing. Pulled positive cable from each battery. Hooked back up and started, no light flashing!! Went for good drive up and down hills. Runs like a champ!! Thank everyone for their input here. twodot.
