Got an 84 GL 4sp D/R

I was checking out the fluids and found the tranny oil was WAY over filled!

It measured about an inch and a half OVER the full mark on the dip stick.

Is this going to be a problem?
and...
Is there a drain plug to get rid of some oil, like the diff has?

I know I can pull the drive line and get a 90w shower and
I could probably pump it out...

But is there an easier way...?

Thanks

It shouldnt have hurt anything and you can drain it thru the large drain plug, its probably a 21MM or 22MM plug dead center (widthwise) in the transmission near the front.
