It’ll probably be about 2/3rds of the way up on the thing. It shouldn’t be too hard to find, though you might have to do some winding around some 4-wheel drive equipment if so equipped.

You’re also going to want a good quality boxed end wrench of a large size, generally about 24mm in my experience. Don’t try to do this with a crescent or you’ll round off the corners of the bung plug for certain.

It usually is about 2" behind the bell housing and about 3-4" up the side. If its metric, it will probably be a 24mm, if its SAE, it will be about a 7/8" hex. It could be on either side though.
