Oil is drained from the crankcase AND the frame, then refilled at the crankcase using the fill plug on the ignition cover. The engine must be run to move the oil from the crankcase to the oil tank in the frame. Then the dipstick can be removed.

The engine and trans share the same oil, which is why a really good oil is so important. Synthetic oils WILL NOT hurt your clutch, but some automotive oils labeled API ECII MIGHT, so avoid those. Mobil 1 should be fine, but check the label.
