    As someone else has stated, no drain plug. You have to pull the cover off. Make sure the rubber gasket is in good shape or it will leak. It holds 8.5 oz and you can use anything from ATF, gear lube, chaincase oil, motor oil...I prefer either synthetic ATF or gear lube (Mobil 1). Anything mentioned above in a synthetic formula is good to go.

    You should be able to get away using the old one as long as it is not tore or in rough shape... They are cheap, so if you think it should be replaced do not hesitate to do so.

    Amsoil chain case lube as well as ATF fluid works just fine.

    A guy told me that klotz makes good chain case oil! But personnally I think the best oil you can put here is DEXTRONIII/MERCON transmission oil. JMO![]
