5 speed trans question

hey all i hate to sound like a moron but where do i need to look to find info on what type of trans that i have in my 98 ranger so i can order a rebuild kit, it is a 5 speed manual, and i would just crawl under it but its raining like crazy outside and don't have room in the shop yet to pull it in. Thanks

http://zbag.com I've purchased a few rebuild kits from these guys. They're priced right and quality is there.

Got a question I also have a 1998 Ranger 5spd. How would I go about changing the trans fluid? I see where to drain nut is how about filling and how much fluid. 188xxx miles on the original clutch!!

there is a plug up and forward i believe from the drain, I use a funnel with about 2-3 feet of hose, and run it down to it from the engine compartment. refill with MERCON ATF will take 3 quarts or till it is to the bottom of the fill plug hole, if you don't under stand what i mean then buy a Chilton book.
