Default manual transmission fill plug (s)?

Hi, I have a 91 accord wagon. I'm looking to change my trans fluid, but I'm not sure which plug to fill from? I have read the faq and searched, but my trans seems different.
Here are some pics. Drain?:



Fill?:



All three are square holes, no sign of a hex head.

Also, I have a couple bottles of redline MT90 in the garage, I haven't heard much about using this, I understand the Honda MTF is good, but I have no other use for the MT90... What do you think about using this fluid?

You have the fill and drain bolts correct. I personally use Honda MTF, but over on Acurazine, the folks there swear on the Redline fluid for their auto trannys.

IICR, Fill is at the top, second pic where your 1st finger is pointing. Drain is at the bottom.

In the second pic, the fill plug is the bottom one. Obviously, the drain plug is the one at the far bottom.

Just me here but the fill plug is actually seen in the first pic....

You can just see it, rear of the CV shaft.

Sealing bolts....#34 and #35 in this pic......not the fill hole for the trans.

The upper sealing bolt "seems" close to the true fill bolt but is higher IMO, so if you don't want to follow the proper procedure and us it.....good luck. Overfill your trans - it is your car. I'd use what the factory wants you to use.

EDIT: Which is #41 in the pic and the same as posted before. again, your car......do as you please.
