Which is the correct drain plug? I see a torx on the botom towards the right side of the case.

The softail is a bit different than the baggers as far as the drain plug. Look up between the shocks and you will find it. Start the plug by hand when you are done so you don't cross thread it.

Take a look here, third pic.

Re: How to change 03 Heritage transmission fluid

Can i say this?-type in 'DUDEWORLD-HOW TO' into your search engine and hopefully a fully scripted and pictorial treatise will come up.An enterprising and helpful Aussie guy posted 3 how-to's regarding H-D's.
How to change Twin Cam engine,primary and gearbox oils.It's logical,helpful and most importantly,easy enough for any idiot or tyro(me) to follow to an acceptable conclusion.

Seriously,it shows EXACTLY everything you need to do,except change the oils for you.
