1967 mustang coupe rear axle drain

My son just bought a 1967 mustang coupe to restore for his High School Senior Project. I think it has an 8" rear end. We can not find a drain plug on this? The filler plug we found, but how do we drain all the oil & sludge with out without taking it all apart? We have ordered some books from Scott Drake Company but have not received them yet. Thanks

Hiya, I see this is your first post. Welcome to the site.
You probably won't get it out without taking the cover completely off. It isn't too bad to do, it'll just stink but it'd be the best thing to do.

have to pull the center chunk

To properly clean out the housing you will have to pull the axles and then remove the center chunk it will stink use a plastic cup to dip out what doesn't drain then wipe the metallic shavings out of the bottom of the housing and reassemble and fill with lubricant.
