servicing a transmission upside down????'s

I have a 700r4 transmission and was wondering could I change the filter while the transmission is upside down and it is drained of the fluid? THANKS

I don't see any reason not.

It'll be fine, better actually because you'll be able to get the pan rails 100% clean, when the trans is upright (installed) the fluid always likes to run down and collect right where the gasket goes, making it very hard to get an oil-free seal.
