You have to take the inspection cover off the trans and turn the flywheel with a prybar until the TC's drain plug shows. It will refill when ou load the trans with fluid.

If It has a Drain you can do it that way, just fill it with 15QT before you start it Then add 1-3 more by checking it.
If it dont have a drain, like the newer ones We put the amount in that you drain out +4 Qt. then remove the rear line start the truck and fill a milk jug. do that 3 times and nice clean red fluid will show up and you are done.

yes it will pump the converter full all by its self, That is only if you drain the converter. If you dont drain it then you will only get about 8 qts out.

I prefer to put 7 to 8 in. Than start the engine, run 15 second, shut down. Then add the rest.

I wouldn't add all 15 qts at once with the engine shut off. I second RacersX's method. Put in 8-10qts start the truck, then add more fluid until full.
