The rear axle center housing is also the sump for the 3 point hydraulics on that tractor, that is if it has a 3 point lift. The transmission is a separate sump. There should be a square headed pipe plug near your right heel when you're sitting on the tractor. The hole that plug is in is the level check hole for the rear axle/hydraulics. The fill hole is on the top of the differential hosing and has a large hex head plug in it and is located under your right butt cheek when you're sitting on the tractor. Fill it through the fill hole until fluid just begins to drip out of the level check hole.

The transmission level check hole is also on the right side, up by the brake pedals, just forward of the seam between the transmission and the rear axle center housing, and it also has a square head pipe plug. The fill plug is up by the shifter, also with a large hex head plug. Filling procedure is the same as the rear axle.

They use the same type of oil but do not share a common sump. 3 cylinder Fords all have separate reservoirs for transmission and rear axle.
