Default 91 Marathon rear end lube question

I have another question about my 91 marathon project cart. I have looked at the rear end and can't see where the fill port is for the lube. I am wanting to drain and change the lube before deer season but don't want to drain until I can refill (call me silly). Can anyone direct me. I am sure I am just overlooking the obvious. Thanks in advance.

How about a big yellow plug above the drivers side axle tube. Is yours like this?

The yellow plug is probably caked with dirt and grease so its hard to see.

Unfortunately there is no "big yellow plug" on the differential. It has the bottom pan and what looks like a freeze plug on the passenger side of the cart. I know it isn't a freeze plug but that is what it looks like. I have looked over it again and the only penetrations on the top portion of the diff. is the governor and the clutch shaft. I will try to post a pic.

Yes, it is a 2 stroke. Does anyone have any experience with this type of rear end. I am really wanting to complete this phase of the project.

I will look at a 2 stroke at my work this weekend, the one ezgo there has the rear pan pointing to the ground so the plug has to be up somewhere.

Yes mine has the rear end with the bottom pan. The one in the stick has the rear facing pan with the integrated fill plug. I have checked again and only find what looks like a freeze plug. Hopefully can help out.

The rears with the bottom pans are the same as used on electric carts, you can look in the electric section service manual in the sticky. They have a drain/fill plug that angles into the pan I believe.
