Rand,

Go here to see if you have 1 or 2 speed:

See the attached jpg picture to see where the drain and fill plugs are.

As a further note, I am not recommending this to you or anyone else, but I use 5w-30 synthetic motor oil in my 1-speed Puch and after 8500 miles the clutch shows no discernable wear. The bearings also are "as new". The reason I don't use ATF is that that is what was in all three 1-speed Puch motors that I bought and they all had rough bearings on the transmission shaft and the right side crank bearing, which is lubricated by the transmisison oil. I am not arguing one oil over the other, justing stating facts and personal experience. I also experimented with Slick-50 and BG Extreme Pressure Concentrate. My objective was to make the clutch slip more. Nothing that I added to the tranny achieved this. So I went to Mobil-1 5w-30 motor oil as tranny fluid and it has served me well.
