Once you've rotated the engine around so that the drain plug is at the bottom, do yourself a favor and mark the crankshaft pulley so the next time you can just watch for your mark as you rotate the engine. I just used a Sharpie.

Here's the section from the manual.
Thanks for the link to the procedure, as I plan on performing this service in the near future. Very Helpful!
