Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1972 Ford pinto with a 2.0, it hasn't ran in
years, I can get it to turn out and found and oil leak
that I fixed, but now when i dump coolant into it, its
leaking out of transmission (pours out), I am
wondering if there is a freeze plug or something
that is right where the tranny bolts to the block.
