Where do i put the Transmission fluid?!

i Can't find the Little Dipstick for the transmission fluid and i haven't found any pictures for what i should be searching for i know this seems like a noobish question but i just recently got this 87 Prelude and replaced the clutch and flywheel on it but now i can't seem to find where the Tranny Fluid goes...
i searched around the web and people are saying its below the radiator but i found nothing there... any ideas..? :

Re: Where do i put the Transmission fluid?!

typically there is no dipstick for manual transmissions....there is like a plug on the bottom, and a plug on the side of the trans. you fill it up from the plug on the side. you'll want to look up the capacity and type of fluid you need (not auto trans fluid). typically you just fill it up until fluid just starts to come out of the hole.

they are threaded plugs, not some kind of rubber either. usually you just need a socket wrench without a socket on it to open the plugs.

Exactly what hojemwod said. Some people will take the fill plug out and pour it into the speed sensor until it runs out of the fill hole...

When they're saying by the radiator, I think that they are talking about the auto trannny. The fill hole on the 5 speed is a big ass bolt thats above the passenger axle. You'll know it when you see it.

thanks a bunch found out 2 days ago and well just been waiting for the caliper order to come in tomorrow for the lude it seems like every time there's a new problem this time it was just a stripped thread but apparently it was "unrepairable" :/
