How do you go about removing the most fluid from a powerglide without removing it from the car?

drain plug and or pan along with coolant lines. Almost impossible to get it out of the converter without removing converter.
Do like Chrysler did drill a 5/16 hole near a mounting lug tap it 1/8 npt install a plug. Rotate it to bottom and drain until empty. Blow out the cooler along with its lines. All of mine are that way.
Wow, no one with the right answer yet..
Just park it a few days in a new trailer. Fluid removes itself from the trans.
64% of the time, works every time
The transmission doesn't drain in the trailer over a few days. A lot of torque converters will drain about half their fluid back into the transmission pan over time. but you are still leaving old fluid in the converter.
I wasn’t being serious, that was a joke..
On my old open trailer, Trans never leaked a drop. Got a new enclosed trailer with a nice coin floor..it starts leaking.
For what it’s worth, I thought it was funny.

So did I
We recommend against drilling the converter. There is no sure fire way to keep all the metal shavings from the inside of the converter.
@Iforgot that's a good one!

Does FTI recommend changing fluid every so many runs. I put about 50 on my fluid and change it. Why do the converter manufacturers not put a drain in the converter?
Good god!!! 50 runs? Why? I bet most are closer to 500 before changing and some filter it and put it back in, if it aint burnt its fine. Waste of money imo but ill let an expert chime in

Byron's actual elevation is 730' because that matters more than winning anything ever....
I use Dexron 6 in my th400 and never change it. When the trans is serviced (1000 runs) it gets changed.
I would like to try THIS BRAND next time.
markemark, what brand Dexron VI are you using?
