    Filler is the dipstick tube.
    Usual process is to drain off what comes out which back flushes the strainer (there is no filter as such) and measure what came out which will be a portion of the total contents. Refill with the same quantity.
    If you want to change the strainer as you have said then again, catch and measure the fluid that comes out which will be more.

    Don’t be tempted to flush the rest of the system.

    I did a drop and swap on my old Collie... I would drop 5litres then top up with 5litres . wait a week then do the same... 4 times i did it.. Coz i had a 20 litre drum of ATF:thumbup:..... Filling through the tube can be a nightmare but with a funnel, bit of hose pipe, and gaffer tape, You can knock something up... Like starcruiser says its down the dipstick tube... The only way.

    Yes, not easy but a slightly smaller funnel with a bit of wire bent into a U, upside down with one leg in the tube to keep the funnel from blocking off the air coming back out makes it a bit easier. If that makes sense.

    If all is well with the gear box, Id just do the fluid swap... Is there a reason you want to change the strainer...Most of the strainers are cleanable elements anyway..... My Collie had 285,000 miles on it and the box was fine .. i just changed ATF for peace of mind.. If the box is ok id just do a drop and swap... like in my earlier post i Dropped 5 litres /put 5 litres in... run it for a week then repeat.... as many times as you like... your call... if the sumps not leaking now it will after you remove and replace it:lol:

    Is this your cruiser?

    No oil? :scared-eek:

    Unless something has been damaged to let the oil out while stationary and the engine has not been run, there will without doubt have been damage done to the engine. The amount will depend on how long it was run in that condition and how hard. At the very least it will need internal inspection particularly to the big end bearings and bores. If damage is found then Main bearings should be inspected too. Anything damaged should be replaced or repaired as appropriate.

    Whoever was responsible for checking the oil will have learned an expensive lesson by the end of that lot.
