Final drives do not share oil with any other reservoirs. You're supposed to take the sumps off to drain, but I'm sure most have never been off. Keep them full to the filler hole with gear lube and you'll be fine. You can remove the 8 or so bolts and take the sumps off fairly easily...it wouldn't be that hard. Just get a couple of new gaskets from your dealer for reassembly. My suspicion is that if you drilled and tapped a hole, your plug would be wedged into the gear before it got tight. I don't think there's a lot of clearance between the gear and the sump. The transmission and the differential share the same oil supply. The drain for the power director is right ahead of the transmission..right in line with the power director lever. I believe it's more toward the left side and angles off to the side. If your D-17 is a newer one, the hydraulic and power director share a common oil supply. If it's an older one, there will be a seperate dipstick and breather cap along the right side of the torgue tube. If you have a newer D17, there will be no seperate breather, and you'll have a hydraulic oil filter along the right side near the power director lever.

Thanks for the info--I'll check things out on Thursday. That's a good point about the plug maybe hitting the gear--I take it the gear is pretty close to the housing. There's no dealer within 2 hours of here, but I'll get a couple of gaskets next chance I get.
