Barefoot, Thanks for the reply. I have been working on the bearing and also searching the net for info.
I think somewhere I ran across a page that said the manual tranny fill plug is on the side of tranny closest to the firewall. Sounds like a plug so won't see it sticking out. I guess it uses a standard 3/8" ratchet head to remove. Takes 2 1/2 qt. To fill from empty. Drain plug is on bottom. Fill till coming out of fill plug. I think takes std. 80-90 gear oil. Chiltons makes no mention of that ( says dip stick ).
I have spindal off and removed hub. Bearing race froze to hub. Inner and outter seals are different sizes. Has a single bearing ( double wide ) held in with a snap ring. Autozone got the rotor right but gave two bearings and two same seals. They will have to go back. Their bearing OD not big enough.
I got help from another page that told me I had to completely remove bolt holding spindel onto ball joint to get it off. Sure enough ball joint has a slot in it for the bolt. I did get it off without tearing the BJ boot so feel lucky. Will go to real parts store Mon. And get right bearings and seals. Then take to machine shop and have them press out/in as I don't have drafts that big and don't want to do it again by ruining bearing.
