I have a 1977 model Franklin 170 which fills from the transmission lines. I have had the torque converter out three times and never had to fill it from anywhere else.

One word to the wise when working on an automatic transmission.  I had to replace the mainshaft and a bearing in mine and didn't get a front cover gasket so I made the mistake of using silicon. $1200 worth of parts got it back together with no more gears clashing but had no first or third gear. I had to pull everything right back out and found I had small balls of silicon clogging the clutchpack oil holes. I decided since I was down that far to replace the clutchpack discs. I got to where  I needed a bearing puller for a bearing up against a gear made on a shaft. Parts have scattered everywhere after four years. Probably will never find everything again to ever get it back together. The $2500 453 Detroit I had only run a month is now stuck probably from rain running in the exhaust. About decided to junk it out.
