Default manual transmission fluid fill up

Were is the best place to do this at? I have the trans out of the car at the moment but had all the fluid come out. I was thinking once it is back in the car i can put the fluid in through the shifter, will that work??

There is but it doesn't appear to be accessible while the trans is in.

Yes you can fill it in at the shifter. I just did mine in my Cobra and that's how I did it. Just take your time and be careful not to spill any in the car.

Yes that's true.
Bog Warner and Tremec state that re: Synthetics- Mobil1 ATF is only brand advisable to use and tested by Tremec.
I choose to use it for the last 200k miles and it pivots and shifts smoothly for me.
