driver's side of the center section; just to the rear of the u- joint, or else on the back of the pumpkin (which you already would have found)

My parent's '58 Bird has one, my dad's '59 Ford Galaxie 500 has one, my '60 Bird never had one.

Huh??? How would Ford fill it or know when it's full? John, I never heard of a RE without a 'fill' plug.

When the center section with no fill plug is shifted to an axle housing with no fill plug this is what you get. Probably can check/fill thru one of the stud holes.
