    Make sure the fill plug can be undone before draining.

    Im sure the LT77 has 2 drain plugs in it. One has a filter above it, the other doesn’t. I think it’s something to do with the extension case, but could be wrong.

    Edit, yes it does have 2, I thought it did.
    Have a look at this:

    Just thinking now of a Plan now to fill the Bloody thing up, after Ive drained it.
    I can see it from the top if I remove the gear stick Gator thingy, so was thinking of some kind of tube and fill it from up there .
    Unless anyone knows a trick for doing it.

    I use an old garden sprayer. Very easy as it's trigger controlled.
