Looks pretty nice. Guess you have to use a pump to remove the gear oil now since you eliminated the drain plug.

You remove one of the lower studs and most of the oil will drain out.

Actually, I replaced one of the lower studs with a bolt. It makes for a slow drain but it works.

Try replacing another one for faster drainage, either another bottom one or try one top one to eliminate the anti-syphon going on inside.
Nice job BTW.
