The only way to access the two freeze plugs between the transmission and block is to remove the transmission. This usually happens after a long time, when you do remove the freeze plugs be sure to clean the block out, you will find some of the original casting sand in the block still...

I remember when I rebuilt my transmission, I inspected those plugs and no leaks... Then I but the transmission in and a few days later... Drip drip drip drip... Had to remove the transmission again to replace no more than 3 bucks worth of freeze plugs, but it was good because I found that the torque converter bolts came loose and that is when I learned that locktite always on converter bolts, but it gave me the opportunity to replace the rear planet that I chewed up. So it wasn't all that bad, just...

Anyways, have fun!
