Don't use the block off plate. It is necessary to be able to lock overdrive out. Heavily loaded with long grades the lock out comes in handy. Also, you can't completely drain an AW-71. Even if you drain the pan and the converter by tipping it upside down you are only going to be able to put in 2.5-3 quarts of fluid before you run the engine. IOW, don't overfill it. Definitely flush the trans. That's a bunch of BS you are hearing.
